Copying BSP causes syntax error!

Watch out when copying a BSP (SAP_BSP to ZSAP_BSP for example). What I found is that the text in Views gets shifted to the right, in some places 2 characters, in others 6 characters. If the original View has an ABAP comment line, you now have a syntax error.

Looks like a bug in SAP. I raised an OSS message about this.

    Yes OSS is the way to go. Maybe update this thread after resolve?

    I could not find your problem yet. Maybe already processed.

    I did try a test in our 640 development system, and found no problem. Suspect problem related to pretty print (although I do not understand why it is executed) and/or a special language feature build into preview of BSP pages. Also we did fix a small pretty printer bug within last about 3 months.

    When you open OSS problem, also include page source before after copy, and SP level. Then we can try it with this specific source as well. My test example worked now.

    thanks, brian

    Are you running patch level 40 of the SAPGui 620? I have seen the same problem, but in our 46C R/3 system with regular ABAP programs as well. My problem started right after I put on Patch Level 40. I assumed that was the culprit and warned the other developers to stay away from this patch level. So far I am the only one within our development group that is seeing this.

      I do enjoy pretty print and use it all the time. So the * that other people wrote (or I wrote) do get shifted. So I've told myself to always use " in htm and then I can pretty print as often as I like.
