Error in the transaction SPAM to update ABAP Add-On when BW Delta extractor process is running.

Hi experts,

We are delivering support packages of the ABAP Add-On, and the customers need to use the transaction SPAM to update their environment.

Some customers have the process BW delta extractor is running in the same environment. They are using the window of the time, when the BW is not running, to execute the update the ours ABAP Add-On with SPAM.

I don´t know the why.

There is a real problem?

Is it possible to check the problem existence ?

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Adriana Medeiros

    Hi Adriana,

    My guess would be that the delta extractor is based on a function module or other ABAP code which is affected by the ABAP add-on with SPAM.

    Consider executing the ransaction while the system is quiet and deltas are not running.

    Please provide screen shots of the error and the technical name of the extractor, if you need additional help.

    Good luck!

    • Hi John,

      I have a print, but it is low quality and the text is is portuguese.

      I understood that, the phase " CHECK_REQUIMENTS" in importation of the Support Package is stopped. The explication is there is extraction orders of the delta waiting in the environment. And this message say that, it is necessary complete these importation before start the support package update. This message mentions the SAP Notes: 1081287, 1083709 and 328181.

      But, in my case, I am updating an ABAP Add-On. And all objects belong to specific namespace. I believe, this update don´t have impact in the process extraction orders of the delta. What do you think about it?

      Thank you veru much!

      Best regards,
