Hello Experts

We have performed a combined upgrade and unicode migration on our ECC system and now it is on NW release 7.4 SP 11. We are facing a Convert code page issue.

ST22 dump is as below:

During conversion of a text from code page '4110' to code page '4103', one of the following occurred: - characters were discovered that cannot be dislpayed in one of the code pages, or - the conversion could not be performed for some other reason (see below for more details) Excerpt from the source buffer from the first character that could not be converted, displayed in hexadecimal form (with the ASCII characters in brackets): C4 56 45 52 4F 4C 4C 49 4E 45 4E 20 4D 59 59 4E (.VEROLLINEN MYYN) The current ABAP program "ZZIFI_MYYNTILASKUT" had to be terminated, as this conversion would have resulted in incorrect data. The number of non-convertible characters is 1. If this number is 0, the second reason stated above applies.

Kindly help ASAP as this is a show stopper for us.

4110 is SAP code page for UTF-8.

4103 is your SAP system code page.

OPEN DATASET attempts opening the file as a UTF-8 file, but C4 56 is not a valid UTF-8 sequence, so I guess your file is not UTF-8. Maybe it's Latin 1 i.e. SAP code page 1100 (in that case try OPEN DATASET with IN LEGACY TEXT MODE CODE PAGE '1100')

Dear Utsav,

would you please check the syntax snippet from the dump which shows the coding which raises the dump and post it here? Alternatively please attach the dump.

Looks like the system tries to process data from a format different than UTF-8 (probably Non-Unicode).

Best regards,
