Upgradation

Hi experts,

Can any body tell me when we upgrade SAP system to new version, for example from 4.5 to 4.7 or 4.6c to 4.7.what problem may occur?. I mean when we dump some reports or module pool programs. From lower versions to higher versions what type of problems may occur? Some reports will give short dumps.

Regards

    hi Ravi,

    Usually in upgrade they correct the obsolete function modules and BDC Changes if any ... as you said these all sometimes might lead to dump which could be because of missing screens or else with declaration types which are not supported in that versions

    herer are some of the obsolete function modules in higher versions ..

    List of obsolete FM

    CALL FUNCTION 'CLPB_EXPORT'

    CALL FUNCTION 'DD_GET_DD03P'

    CALL FUNCTION 'DOWNLOAD'

    CALL FUNCTION 'GET_FIELDTAB'

    CALL FUNCTION 'HELP_DOCU_SHOW_FOR_FIELD'

    CALL FUNCTION 'HELP_VALUES_GET_WITH_TABLE'

    CALL FUNCTION 'NAMETAB_GET'

    CALL FUNCTION 'POPUP_TO_CONFIRM_LOSS_OF_DATA'

    CALL FUNCTION 'POPUP_TO_CONFIRM_STEP'

    CALL FUNCTION 'POPUP_TO_CONFIRM_WITH_MESSAGE'

    CALL FUNCTION 'POPUP_TO_CONFIRM_WITH_VALUE'

    CALL FUNCTION 'POPUP_TO_DECIDE'

    CALL FUNCTION 'PROFILE_GET'

    CALL FUNCTION 'REGISTRY_GET'

    CALL FUNCTION 'STRING_CONCATENATE'

    CALL FUNCTION 'UPLOAD'

    CALL FUNCTION 'WS_DOWNLOAD'

    CALL FUNCTION 'WS_EXECUTE'

    CALL FUNCTION 'WS_FILENAME_GET'

    CALL FUNCTION 'WS_QUERY'

    USUALLY WHEN WE CHANGE TO HIGHER VERSION , THE REPORTS GIVE SHORT DUMP , IF THERE IS CHANGE IN FUNCTION MODULE USED IN PROGRAM IN HIGHER VERSION.

    WHEN CALL SOME SUBROUTINE, THERE MAY BE CHANGE IN PARAMETERS TYPES BEING SENT TO SUBROUTINE, EVEN AT THIS TIME IT WILL GIVE SHORT DUMP.

    Hi ravi,

    while getting into the higher versions, some function modules will be obsoleted.

    that time you need to replace the old FM to new FMs or objects. so while u run the old program with new version it will give u dump.
