VL02N:Post Goods Issue Error: PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE

Hi gurus,

i am testing post goods issue under vl02n after posting&delivering a sales order with type OR. the ' PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE' error occured after my clicking post good issue.

PFB the error log, can anyone help to solve it out. TIA.

    No PXA storage space available at the moment.

What happened?
    The current ABAP/4 program had to be terminated because there
    was no space available to load it.

    Each ABAP/4 program to be executed is stored in a central
    storage area that is divided between all users.
    This area was too small to hold all currently active programs for all
    Resource bottleneck

    The current program "SAPMV50A" had to be terminated because
    a capacity limit has been reached.

What can you do?
    Since this could have resulted in a temporary bottleneck, you should
    try to restart the program.

    Ask your system administrator to increase the size of the area (PXA)
    used to store the ABAP/4 programs.

    Note which actions and input led to the error.

    For further help in handling the problem, contact your SAP administrator

    You can use the ABAP dump analysis transaction ST22 to view and manage
    termination messages, in particular for long term reference.

Error analysis
    Unable to load a program of 1048576 bytes.
    The PXA ('program execution area') was too small to hold all
    currently active programs for all users.
    At present, the size of the PXA is set at 144868 Kbytes.
    The largest contiguous and unlocked memory chunk has 1014784 bytes.

How to correct the error
    The current size of the PXA was set at 144868 kilobytes.
    You can increase or decrease the PXA in the SAP profile. When
    doing this, please refer to the relevent instructions in the
    installation manual.

    You can use the utility program 'ipclimits' to display the
    available system resources.

    If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to
    find an interim solution in an SAP Note.
    If you have access to SAP Notes, carry out a search with the following


    If you cannot solve the problem yourself and want to send an error
    notification to SAP, include the following information:

    1. The description of the current problem (short dump)

       To save the description, choose "System->List->Save->Local File

    2. Corresponding system log

       Display the system log by calling transaction SM21.
       Restrict the time interval to 10 minutes before and five minutes
    after the short dump. Then choose "System->List->Save->Local File

    3. If the problem occurs in a problem of your own or a modified SAP
    program: The source code of the program
       In the editor, choose "Utilities->More

    4. Details about the conditions under which the error occurred or which
    actions and input led to the error.

any reponses will be awarded,

    Hi Samson,

    During large memory is required to transfer between the swap space and main memory , you are getting this error.

    Please update with memory in case.

    If you are using 32 bit operating system, system can allocate 4 Gb ram, Incase of 64 bit system you can avail for more memory space.

    So please Check out with your basic consultant to resolve this issue.
