Strange lines in ABAP activation list

When I activate an object from SE80, I see - along with the actual object to be activated, the following lines in the activation list:

METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00N
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00O
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00P
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00Q
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00R
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00S
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00T
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00U
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00V
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00W
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00X
METH ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN=========CM00Y

i.e. the type is METH, but the name points to a class include. It is not possible to perform "activate" on these lines. I get the message "operation terminated"

The class ZCL_CS01_BILLING_PLAN is all active.

How can I remove these corrupt entries?

    I solved it: The includes above were resides of former methods I had in the class. The methods have been deleted but somehow these entries remained.

    Solution: I created 12 dummy methods so the includes were being reused again. I activated the class. Then I deleted the methods again. Now the activation list is clean again.

    A class pool is organized in include programs. There is an include program for each method. You see the technical names of the include programs above (as they can be seen in table TRDIR too). When activating a class, of course its include programs are activated too. What's exactly your problem.

    PS: To learn more about the organization of a class, use funtion code SHOW_CLIF in the OK field of the class builder and select CLASS POOL there.

    • Hmm, then it seems to be a kind of a bug. After activating the full class the includes should vanish from the list. For an inactive class, you should be able to activate the individual includes.

    Are you getting any short dumps, you could check the dumps for more details.
