Data issue


My previous issue has been fixed.

Question: We have an InfoObject Data type is Char - Character String, Length: 25. When we load the data from flat file, we expect to see "009" but we saw "0000000000000000000000009" instead. How can we get "009" back? Answer: Remove alpha conversion routine from the infoobject, activate it, delete data and reload.


Now I tried to load data from PSA to this InfoObject Attributes. It failed and I got this error message:


Date and Time 12/20/2006 16:49:46

In the running application program, the ASSERT statement recognized a

situation that should not have occurred.

The runtime error was triggered for one of these reasons:

- For the checkpoint group specified with the ASSERT statement, the

activation mode is set to "abort".

- Via a system variant, the activation mode is globally set to "abort"

for checkpoint groups in this system.

- The activation mode is set to "abort" on program level.

- The ASSERT statement is not assigned to any checkpoint group.

What can you do?

Note down which actions and inputs caused the error.

To process the problem further, contact you SAP system


Using Transaction ST22 for ABAP Dump Analysis, you can look

at and manage termination messages, and you can also

keep them for a long time.

Error analysis

The following checkpoint group was used: "No checkpoint group specified

If in the ASSERT statement the addition FIELDS was used, you can find

the content of the first 8 specified fields in the following overview:

" (not used) "

" (not used) "

" (not used) "

" (not used) "

" (not used) "

" (not used) "

" (not used) "

" (not used) "

How to correct the error

Probably the only way to eliminate the error is to correct the program.


If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to

find an interim solution in an SAP Note.
