Function Group is ambiguous error - Table Maintenance Generator

Hi experts,

I am trying to create a TMG for the maintenance view /GICOM/VM_BO_AFE.

I provided the following details for creating TMG:

  • Authorization Group: &NC&
  • Function Group name: /GICOM/01BASIS02
  • Maintenance Type: One Step
  • Maint. Screen No. Overview screen: 2
  • Recording Routine: no, or user, recording routine

And clicked on button to create TMG.

Then, it displayed the following errors:


On the other hand, I can see that the screen 2 (overview screen) is generated in the Function Group and Function Module VIEWPROC_/GICOM/VM_BO_AFE is also generated in it.
But VIEWFRAME function module is not generated for this.


And when I try to Maintain the view in SM30 transaction, it was showing the following error

I didn't find the exact reason for these errors. Can someone help me in resolving this issue.

Thanks & Regards,
Vasu Attaluri

      Hi Raymond,

      1. I didn't find any input help for Function Group by searching with SAPL*OM*S*.
      2. And I found the following programs for LOM*S*:
        LOM_ARRAYCLS

        LOM_GEN_OVERVIEWCLS
        LOM_NAVFRAMEWORK_OO_OBJCLS
        LOM_NAVIGATIONFRAMEWORKCLS
        LOM_OBJECTMANAGERCLS
        LOM_PEOPLELISTCLS

        But none of the above programs resolved my issue.

      3. Then at last, I looked for FM VIEWFRAME_/GICOM/VM_BO_AFE and I found it. Deleted this one and tried to create TMG again.
        And this time, the TMG created successfully without any errors.


      Thank you so much Raymond. You made my day.

    In the function group is there more than just the table maintenance you have used? It is possible that when the system is creating the data it needs for the table maintenance that it is running into an issue with adding a field that is already there.
