Information on where terminated

The termination occurred during generation of the ABAP/4 program "SAPLFBW4".

There is an inconsistency in the DDIC structure "DTFIAP_3". This means there is

an error in the corresponding Dictionary runtime object (NAMETAB).

The number of components in the structure (NAMETAB component "fldcnt")

is given as 79. However, when all substructures are resolved, and the

actual total number of components is calculated (recursively), the value

is different.

This error was caused by a change being made to the structure "DTFIAP_3" or one

of its substructures, and an error occurring during the subsequent

activation. To find out the exact cause of the error, examine the

runtime object of the structure "DTFIAP_3" in the Dictionary.

If the program RSDDCHECK is in your system, you can use it check the

structure "DTFIAP_3".
