Problem with transfer of variables from BW web report to SEM BPS web layout

Hi all,

On I've found a whitepaper on how to transfer a variable from the BW web API to the SEM BPS web API. The paper is called "How to Call a BPS Web Interface with Predefined Selections".

I've followed the instructions to the point; the correct variable value is transferred to the URL using RRI; however, SEM BPS prompts an error message.

Any of you that have any experience with how to get SEM BPS to accept the value transfered by the URL? Has it anything to do with internal/external formats?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Can you tell me what the error message says? Maybe it is because of some other problem...

    You have to be a little carefull as the API that is used in the coding of the paper uses the characteristic value in EXTERNAL format. If you only have the internal format available you either have to convert to external format (using the fucntion module UPC_CHAVL_IN_EX_CONVERT) or use some internal methods to set a variable value.

      Hello Gerd,

      Thank you very much for your attention. I've debugged the BSP, and all sy-subrc's are EQ 0 and all variables are filled. The only thing I wonder about is that the co-order no. - e.g. FAGLIGVIDEN - is transfered/transformed into IEQFAGLIGVIDEN, but that is probably ok?

      Besides debugging using SE80, I've put a trace on the proces from SM50. The log shows, that the program produces an uncaught exception that is related to program/module CL_BSP_RUNTIME. The seems to have no relevant notes related to this module/program.

      I've somehow also wonder if the problem could be caused by the HTTP settings in the SMICM?

      Could I mail you the SM50-log, please? Your mail would be

      Once again: Thanks in advance for putting your efforts into this!

      Best regards,
