Error COM routine (return code 40,301) in DP



In SCM 5.0, when we are uploading the data into Pl book, its giving this error. "error for COM routine using appln program (return code 40,301).

I did doing all cons checks, re-initialising PA, etc. There are neither negative values in data nor there any fixings. Basically users have been doing the copy and paste from excel to Pl Book.

Now at a certain material, I cant put my number (48) either by copy/paste or manual input. It throws this error. But it can save some other small nos like 25, 8, etc..

I sent OSS msg to SAP, they said to check for any negative values or lastly to do reinitalise PA and load from backup later, which i hate to do. It looks to me that they didnt investigate, just sent me a general solution.

We are on Support Pack 8. As this problem is occurring only last 2 weeks, i cant suspect suddenly on Supp Pkg. My KF was set to Neg Values not allowed, decimal not allowed and calc type as P.

(Let me also narrate a strange behaviour. We tried to copy the data in small sets. So first we copied 200 materials and able to paste. Second time, when we tried to copy next 200, while pasting, this error comes. So when i copied only 100 from excel, it allowed me to save in Pl Book. next 100 fail, allowed only 50.. so on, now stuck on 1 material. )

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
