Hi All,

We are having a problem with a particular PO.

Our Environment is : R3/Rel 46C SR2, Informix, AIX. Support PAckage level 33.

Problem: In Tx ME23N, for a particular PO #, when we select the 'Purchase Order History' Tab and click on the 'Material Document 500xxxxx' in the line for GR, we get a Short Dump 'CONVT_NO_NUMBER'

Unable to interpret "E40832576 " as a number.

This happens only for a particular PO # 4500xxxxxx.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

    Hallo Imran,

    it may sound a bit stupid of me to say but "E40832576" <i>i</i>s not a number. I suggest you repeat the operation and you set a break-point when the short dump occurs. Then you can repeat the operation with another record and then the incorrect one comparing the data. This way, you'll quickly be able to see why the first one is incorrect. Perhaps the correct ones only contain numbers.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards, Gerard.

      Hi Gerald,

      You are absolutlely right...we figured out that the User was using a Report written by one of our developers which was updating the EKBE and MSEG directly, without any checks. We have found the problem and addressing it. Thanks for your input.
