Short dump creating variant with RS_CREATE_VARIANT

I'm getting the attached short dump while creating a variant with ABAP. The problem only occurs when the variants for both RPTIME00 and HDKCALC0 are created in the same program. I've tried adding a COMMIT between them to avoid any buffering problems, but to no avail. I've also tried searching SAP Notes for any hints.

So any input would be appreciated..



Short text

The length of COMMON PART "INFTY_TIME_EVAL" in program "RPTIME00" is incorrect.

Error analysis

The structure of the COMMON PART "INFTY_TIME_EVAL" in program "RPTIME00" is

different from the corresponding area in the calling program


Length of the COMMON PART in program RPTIME00: 11784 bytes.

Length of the COMMON PART in program HDKCALC0: 10752 bytes.

There is probably an error in the program

      Your question definately pointed me in the right direction. Since HDKCALC0 didn't start with a "Z" to indicate customernamespace I made the mistake as to assume it was a standard SAP-program. It wasn't!! It's a payroll-program actually developed in-house.

      Naturally I filed an errorreport with those colleagues responsible for HDKCALC0 and though that life was good 😊

      But - and this is where it gets interesting - during a codereview I mentioned the problem to another co-worker, and fortune would have it that he had been working on RPTIME00 that you might remember was part of the problem. As it were they had made a local enhancement to the INCLUDE used in both RPTIME00 and HDKCALC0 (and a whole lot of other programs).

      And that local enhancement turned out to be the real problem. I definately learned something from this, and hopefully someone else can learn something also 😊
