    Hi,

    This message looks like not used in the program as hard coded and looks like dynamically called. So you can't change from warning to info. I would suggest you to post in ABAP forum to see if someone else has done anything on this message type.

    Regards,

    Hi Cathy,

    In SAP, the Messages are classified with Applications, like V1, VL, V4 etc...

    In General,

    We use Transactions: OVAH, for controlling message-types (Warning or Error) - Application V4

    Transaction: OVM1, for controlling message-types (Warning or Error) - Application VL

    But, Application - V1, are standard SAP errors and they cannot be changed by customizing.

    The only option you have is to MODIFY the standard Code to get an ERROR message.

    Hope this will help you.

    Regards,

    Hrishi

      Hi

      When the warning message is thrown pls double click that message then you will get the message no like message class V1 no 023 like that

      Note down that

      In t code OVAH you can convert from warning to error of message classes V4 (all SD that is sales related messages)

      In t code OVM1 you can convert from warning to error of message classes VL (all SD that is distribution related messages)

      But your message class and message no should lie in the lists of messages given in these t codes

      The messages in these t codes SAP has given for us for customizing that is mainly V4 and VL

      Any thing other than these message classes like V1 etc has to done thro development only

      This has to be done thro development only not possible thro customization

      Go to SE91

      1.Input the message class V1/VL

      2..Input the message no say 061 in no and execute

      3.select the message no and click on where used list (ctrlshiftF3)

      4.select the box programming and deselect all others

      5. Then a list of programs where this error message is used will appear

      6.Double click description on the right side of your screen

      7.Here you can see the codings written for this message 061 which can be changed to warning to error

      Note

      The best way to do it is with ABAPer only

      Not recommended to change the standard settings

      Regards
