BPS Syntax Error

In BPS, manual planning, I create everything from the area, level, package, to the layout. For a time, it works fine. Then without doing anything that I can tell, I start getting error messages. I can't even delete the area or any component once this happens. The error is:

Syntax error in program /1SEM/CL_CHALEV_200ZPLWK======CP

in include /1SEM/CL_CHALEV_200ZPLWK======CI

Then I get:

Explicit length specifications are necessary with types C, P, X, N und W in the OO context.

ZPLWK is my Area that is being referenced, but nothing has changed with it.

Thanks, Keith Johnson

    Hi Keith,

    We had the same problem after we upgraded our support pack situation for SEM3.1b.

    You need to regenerate all the program classes. Use function module (se37) UPC_GENERATE_CLASSES to do this.

    Hope it works,

      This was resolved by applying OSS Note 781371. The note says it is for BW 3.5, but SEM 3.5 is an Add on for BW 3.1, the note also applies to this problem.

      Once the note is applies, you have to fun function modules:



      Then is works as it should.

      Thanks, Keith Johnson
