    Hi Rob,

    I think it is just a warning. See the activation status of the data source.

    To avoid this warning define MABW with odd number length.

    Hi Rob,

    -> The message 'R8 569 ('The exact-number-of-places of the DEC field

    XXX can cause problems') serves as a Warning message and not an

    Error message, and can therefore be ignored.

    The detail explanation of the message is given below:

    -> You want to use the field &v1& in the extract structure of the

    ataSource &v2&. This field occupies a field of typ 'DEC' with

    an even number of decimal places. This can lead to problems,

    since the length caused by calculations in ABAP (for example, for

    extraction in extractors or customer exits) becomes too great

    for insertion into the database (PSA in BW) later on.

    If you are not sure whether the length has been exceeded, check the

    DataSource where you can execute a test extraction with realistic

    data.

    Regards,
