short dump in custom infotype 9500


Hi All,

A custom infotype 9500 was created before patching. Now after patching when i hire a new employee through tcode PA40 , it gives short dump.

short dump description as below



Date and Time 11.03.2010 10:33:22



Short text

Access via 'NULL' object reference not possible.



What happened?

Error in the ABAP Application Program

The current ABAP program "CL_HRPA_SAPUP50R_ADAPTER======CP" had to be

terminated because it has

come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.



What can you do?

Note down which actions and inputs caused the error.

To process the problem further, contact you SAP system


Using Transaction ST22 for ABAP Dump Analysis, you can look

at and manage termination messages, and you can also

keep them for a long time.



Error analysis

An exception occurred that is explained in detail below.

The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_REF_IS_INITIAL', was not

caught in

procedure "CHECK_ENAME_CHANGED" "(METHOD)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING


Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated that the

exception would occur, the current program is terminated.

The reason for the exception is:

You attempted to use a 'NULL' object reference (points to 'nothing')

access a component.

An object reference must point to an object (an instance of a class)

before it can be used to access components.

Either the reference was never set or it was set to 'NULL' using the

| CLEAR statement.
