Run time error (short dump) executing program SCAN_BW_REFERENCES in SE80

Hi experts,

I am not an ABAPer, or Basis person, rather a hybrid functional/technical Key User for our Business Warehouse system (BW 3.5, Netweaver 2004). We have a user who cannot save BW reports to his favorites and he is getting a number of error messages. OSS note 887002 seems to address this and indicates that I should run program SCAN_BW_REFERENCES from transaction SE80. The program is supposed to perform the checks for BW objects assigned to the Favorites and identify situations causing terminations in BW frontend applications. I have attempted to execute this program on several occassions and always get run-time errors (short dumps). Here is the error:

-


Runtime Errors TSV_TNEW_PAGE_ALLOC_FAILED

Date and Time 2008.09.17 19:00:49

ShrtText

No storage space available for extending an internal table.

What happened?

You attempted to extend an internal table, but the required space was

not available.

I have been informed by our Basis group that I have reached a memory limit, but they will not extend the memory paramters. Any ideas on a work-a-round or a way to minimize the number of records this program is pulling in, in an attempt to get it to run?

Thanks,

HC

    Hi,

    Please post the full ABAP dump. As you are aware, this is mainly related to insufficient memory, why is the Basis admin not willing to extend the memory?

    Best regards,

    Warren

      Hi,

      The only response I got from Basis was that they would not extend the memory parameters because they are for all users in the system. Not sure what that means.

      The full dump is too large to paste here. I think what I will do is to see if our ABAPers can create a modified version of this program to include selection by user. Typically it is for only one user that I need to run the program, and that surely would fall within the space requirements.

      Thanks for your answer.
