Hi, all.

We are using a standard program that it's raising a dump trying to open some files with open dataset.


File "XXXX" is already open.

It's there a way to close the dataset from any transaction?

Thanks in advance.

"File is already open" is a standard OS error and it means that another application / user has the file in question open and OS is preventing any other application (correctly) from opening it. I'd suggest to reach out to your Basis admin as they should have direct access to application server and OS tools that could help to troubleshoot this. It's not an ABAP question.

And in general, for assistance with errors in standard SAP programs please reach out to SAP Support.
