Hello ,

BADI - ME_PROCESS_OUT_CUST method PROCESS_ITEMS is getting executed 10 times and for the 11th time , It is giving error message MEOUT - 134 (Error in BAdI ME_PROCESS_OUT / ME_PROCESS_OUT_CUST).

I observed that, in Process_items ,whenever we use method IM_ITEM->SET_DATA method , then only this is happening . and IF don't update ITEM Data using SET_DATA ,then there is no point of implementing this BADI.

So strange. I saw notes saying, inorder to avoid infinite loop , SAP used this 10 times logic . But not sure why and how to save custom field data into EKPO using this BADI .Does anyone have any idea?

Katharina Hellmich any help please?

    To prevent this kind of error use the SET_DATA when and only when you change some data (some field value in structure passed to SET_DATA differs from structure returned by GET_DATA) else SET_DATA will trigger the BAdI again and again til the error is raised.

    • This is quite easy, something such as

      " First read and save a before image
      item_new = item_old = im_item->get_data( ).
      " your code goes here...
      " only when data was actually changed
      if item_new ne item_old.
        im_item->set_data( item_new ).

    See SAP-KBA 2439208 and SAP Wiki link regarding "ME_PROCESS_OUT_CUST" and "MEOUT 134".
