ABAP Message does not exist but is displayed!!

Hi, I'm fixing an old Z report for a customer and I found the following problem:

That instruction:

MESSAGE i007(ZWMA) WITH 'M-1'.

Shows a message! But If I go to transaction SE91 the message class ZWMA does not exist! How is this possible?

    There is no syntax error in this case, your message will probably look like "I:ZWMA:007 M-1".

    Code inspector should find it.

    Is the text of the error message getting displayed when the report is executed?

    • Yes the text is displayed OK in my report

      I've discovered something very strange. If I go to the table T100A the message class doesn't exist, but I've created an entry manually in that table and then when I go to SE91 I can maintain the message class.

      The problem is that T100A is a standard table and obviously I can't create an entry manually in production system... but when and why the entry was deleted from there?... I can just think in a Z development by a bad programmer that has deleted table entries... but how can I solve this without creating inconsistences?

    These kind of problem happened for me also afer upgrade

    But it was package not found.

    Created a package in Development server with the same name and then transported.

    So better create a message class and transport.
