co-pa hierarchy


I’m trying to build co-pa hierarchy in BW. I use the special transaction for it in SBIW. When I run the hierarchy DataSource in RSA3 I’m getting the error “Error 6 in function module RSS_PROGRAM_GENERATE”

Please Advice,

    Hi David,

    Check OSS note 705212:

    Syntax error in the generated extraction program Symptom

    You notice the error by one of the following symptoms:

    The loading of transaction data from an R/3 system terminates with a syntax error in the generated extraction program. The monitor displays the error messages:

    R3027 "Error & during the generation of the data transfer program"

    RSM340 "Error in the source system"

    The extraction within the extractor checker terminates with error message RJ028 "Error 6 in function module RSS_PROGRAM_GENERATE".The activation of transfer rules ends in BW with error message RG102 "Syntax error in GP$ERR$, row... (-> long text)" from the source system. Usually, the diagnosis in the long text of the error message is: "...could not be interpreted. Possible error causes: Incorrect notation or... "

    Other terms

    OLTP, extractor, data extraction, DataSource, Service API, SAPI,

    R3 027, R3 27, RSM 340, RJ 028, RJ 28

    Reason and Prerequisites

    The error only occurs in the source system, if this contains Basis Release 3.1I and Service API (SAPI) 3.0C Support Package 6. SAPI 3.0C Support Package 6 is contained, for example, in PI 2003.1 Support Package 7 (see attached composite SAP note 673002).


    To correct the problem you need service API 3.0C Support Package 7 in the affected source system. The attached composite SAP note 704971 explains in which software components service API 3.0C is contained, and what the corresponding Support Packages of these components are.

    Alternatively, you can also copy the advance correction from the appendix.
