Hi you,

we have a brand-new system with SAP_ABA 740 SP 0017 SAPKA74017.

I wrote a small test progam:

REPORT ZZCLIMESSAGETEST.
  parameters d type sy-datum.

START-OF-SELECTION.
  MESSAGE w033(zmm) WITH 'whatever'.
* Reklamierte Sendung nicht gefunden zu Sendung & (ZJVT_SEND_CARE)

Run in background ist shows job log

Job-Log Uhrzeit Message Text uncodiert N-Klasse Msg-Nr. N-Typ

26.04.2018 11:11:53 Job wurde gestartet 00 516 S

26.04.2018 11:11:53 Step 001 gestartet (Programm ZZCLIMESSAGETEST, Variante &0000000000000, Benutzername CLI) 00 550 S

26.04.2018 11:11:53 Reklamierte Sendung nicht gefunden zu Sendung whatever (ZJVT_SEND_CARE) ZMM 033 E

26.04.2018 11:11:53 Job wurde nach System-Exception ERROR_MESSAGE abgebrochen 00 564 A

SAP documentation (https://help.sap.com/doc/abapdocu_740_index_htm/7.40/en-US/index.htm) clearly states:

Messages of type "I" and "W" are written to the log and the program continues. The user input Enter, which is required to continue the program, is created automatically.

How comes that in my case the W is converted to E and the background Job is cancelled?

Thank you for any qualified hints.

Best regards

Clemens

It is List Processing message behavior (conversion of type W to type E). If you run program in Background job "list processing is usually active". Explained here (same for 7.40) :

Yes.

"Messages of type "I" and "W" are written to the log and the program continues. The user input Enter, which is required to continue the program, is created automatically."

Only applies up to START-OF-SELECTION, and in dynpro programs.

Thank you, Tomas! I ran into this before too and didn't know there was a documented explanation. Just penciled it down to one of the SAP oddities. Good to know.
