We have recently upgraded from ecc6.0 to ecc6.0 ehp 8 and but now in human capital management we are failing to hire our employees in PA40.

we are getting the following screen dump and i am failing to find an sap note please help on how i can proceed.

Program "/1PAPA/FEAT200P0001" not found.

There are several possibilities:

Error in the SAP kernel

The current ABAP program "SAPLHRP3" had to be terminated because the ABAP
processor detected a system error.

can I do?
Note which actions and entries caused the error to occur.

Consult your SAP administrator.

Using transaction ST22 for ABAP dump analysis, you can view, manage,
and retain termination messages for longer periods.
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.

An exception has occurred which is explained in more detail below. The
exception is assigned to class 'CX_SY_PROGRAM_NOT_FOUND' and was not caught in
"HR_FEATURE_BACKFIELD" "(FUNCTION)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING clause.
Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated this
exception, the current program was terminated.
The reason for the exception is:
On account of a branch in the program (CALL FUNCTION/DIALOG, external

PERFORM, SUBMIT) or a transaction call, another ABAP/4 program
should be be loaded.

Program "/1PAPA/FEAT200P0001" is not in the library however.

Possible causes:
a) Wrong program name specified in an external PERFORM or SUBMIT or,
when defining a new transaction, a new dialog module or a new function
module. Note in particular that the program name must be written in

b) Transport error

to correct the error
The exception must either be prevented, caught in procedure
the possibility of it occurring must be declared in the RAISING clause
in the procedure.
To prevent the exception, note the following:

Check the most recent transports to the SAP System.

Are changes currently being made to program "SAPLHRP3"?

Has the correct program been entered in table TSTC for transaction "PA40
If the error occurs in a non-modfied SAP program, you might be able to
find a solution in the SAP Notes system. If you have access to the SAP
Notes system, check there first using the following keywords:

"SAPLHRP3" bzw. LHRP3U01

Information on where terminated
The termination occurred in ABAP program or include "SAPLHRP3", in
main program was "MP000100".

In the source code, the termination point is in line 67 of program or
include "LHRP3U01".
The termination is due to exception "CX_SY_PROGRAM_NOT_FOUND" occurring in
This exception was not handled locally or declared in the RAISING
clause in the procedure's signature however.
The procedure is in program "SAPLHRP3". The source code begins in line 1 of
(include) program "LHRP3U01".

Please do a good search because there are recent Posts and KBA's on this :

  • Post : link (Objects need to be re-Acitvated as Unicode)
  • SAP ONE Support : SAP-KBA 1557366 "HR programs not unicode compatible (/1PAPA/FEAT*)" / SAP-KBA 573044 "573044 - Unicode conversion HR"

Extract :

"In client 000, start the RPUMKG00 program (set parameter 'Type of activation' to '1'). The 'Unicode checks activate' indicator is set in the programs that are generated as a result. If you change any features, repeat this action in the relevant clients."

Kind regards
