Service Content Updates - Syntax errors


Hi Experts,

Today EWA reports failed to generate. There was a syntax error in report /1AGS/AEW_DBUDB____________060

The following syntax error occurred in program "/1AGS/AEW_DBUDB____________060

" in include "/1AGS/AEW_DBUDB____________060 " in

line 1043:

"The field "DBSNAP001118" is unknown, but there are the following field"

"s with similar names: "TBSNAME001181" and "TBSNAME001180"."

Actually, I checked the syntax using se38 and the problem did exist.

I went through this note: SAP Note 1143775 - SAP Service Content Update

And I performed the "(In)activate Updates".

After that, the report SM:EXEC SERVICES ran succesfuly and EWAs were generated. Of course the syntax error had dissapeared (checked again using SE38).

Then, my questions are:

1) is SAP delivering me a program with syntax errors or do I have another problem in my system ?

2) What do you think is the best practice to deal with service content updates and avoid this kind of problems?
