Reg: Kernal Upgrade

Hi All,

I am a ABAP guy and at our side our basis guys have recently done KERNAL UPGRADE and since then we have observed a strange Issue where in the simple staright forward ABAP statements are behaving inconsistantly.

These statements are sometimes working and sometimes failing. Ideally first statement should never fail (always return SY-SUBRC = 0) as it either creates (if no record exists) or updates (if a record exists)

Similarly second statement also should not fail as the field used in WHERE CLAUSE itself is the only primary key. But the same statement when RE-RUN is working fine (if we re-run for several times at one point of time it is working with no change in conditions or data)

I could not find any SAP Notes related to this kind of behaviour, however we had few more weired issues like this after kernal upgrade for which SAP suggested some Notes and once they have been applied by our guys the issues got resolved.

Ex: MODIFY zpp080e FROM gs_zpp080e.






WHERE REQUESTNR EQ REQUESTNR. (Here REQUESTNR is primary key in table)

SO can someone POINT OUT FROM A BASIS PERSPECTIVE, is there a chance that KERNAL UPGRADE (if not done properly) can lead to this kind of inconsistencies?

Thank you,

    Dear Lakshmi,

    As per my view, This type of problem should not be come in Kernel upgrade.

    Can you please ask to basi guy - what is the current kernel version and what is your system details.
