ESS - Time management - Record hours worked problem


I have a problem with Record hours worked in time management in ESS. When I’m trying to execute this link, serious error occurs:

The current statement requires a character-type data object. error key: RFC_ERROR_SYSTEM_FAILURE

I tried to look at runtime error through ST22 and I reached following information:


At the statment

"IF ... op1 CO op2 ..."

, only character-type data objects are supported at the argument

position "op1".

In this particular case, the operand "op1" has the non-charcter-type type



Termination occurred in the ABAP program "CL_XSS_CAT_RFC_COMMAND_TOOLS==CP" -


The main program was "SAPMSSY1 ".

In the source code you have the termination point in line 58

of the (Include) program "CL_XSS_CAT_RFC_COMMAND_TOOLS==CM001".


Do you have any ideas how can I solve this problem or did I set up something wrong? (Time statement)

Thanks in advance
