When I am Processing the Vendor open Items using F-53 transaction Code, The system is terminating Automatically and Is showing an Error as followes:

  • Category : ABAP Programming Error
  • RUN Time Errors: CONVT_NO_NUMBER

Short Text: Unable to Interpret * as a number.

this problem is Occurring for only one Vendor.

actually this Termination can be happening by the time of Double clicking on the open Items in F-53 only after some line items Processed.

There are similar threads on this, see here / here / here / here ... And it seems all to be the same behavior : 'CONVT_NO_NUMBER / Unable to Interprete "*" as a Number'-ShortDump caused by the FM ...

Check this in Debugging and verify if SAP-KBA 2064594 applies : "Short Dump in function module FIWTIN_GET_ACCUMULATION_FLAG"

Kind regards

Thanks sir, For your reply...

In Function Module "FIWTIN_GET_ACCUMULATION_FLAG" the reason for dump is

DATA: counter TYPE c value 1.

It is taking only single digit value. If we change the counter to more than one digit value it will work fine.

Take the access key for the following object "Object R3TR FUGR J1IEWT' ..and change counter from one digit to 2 digit value . It is working fine. and no dump is there now.... Is this procedure ok ?


No, it's not OK. Modifying standard elements is a very bad idea. Regarding standard programs reach to SAP Support. SCN is not the right channel for such questions.
