BDC Error - Codepage could not be determined

Hello Gurus,

We are having a problem with BDC in transaction VF01.

The return message is FES-025 "Codepage could not be determined".

First of all the details and what have been done so far:

- The funcion module with BDC is called by an EDI message that is send on the creation of the SD Invoice.

- In Online mode, no errors are raised;

- The errors are only raised when the program runs in background - Manual processing of EDI message via T-Code WE19 (online mode) runs with no problems;

- In DEV enviroment, everything runs smoothly (both online and background modes) and we achieve the required result;

- In QAS enviroment, with exacly the same versions of code, the background process fails;

- Both DEV and QAS work on the same physical machine, on different instances.

I've searched quite a lot about this error and most results talk about the usage/call of GUI_UPLOAD or GUI_DOWNLOAD. We are NOT using this type of funcions in our code (or something that would connect to the client).

Any ideias?

Thanks in advance, best regards,

João Argêncio

    Some additional informations:

    - The sistem is non-unicode;

    - The EDI message source and destination are the same machine (inter-company process);

    - The user assiciated in IDoc Config has SAP_ALL privileges;

    - Both systems are in the same release levels (ECC 5);

    - All IDoc configuration is equal in both DEV and QAS instances.

    If you need any additional information just let me know.

    Thanks oin advance, best regards,

    Have you looked for notes? There appear to be some that may be relevant.

      Hello Rob,

      Yes I did. Unfortuatlly none of them appears to be usefull. That's why I've included the unicode type of our system because it is referenced in several SAP notes.

      Best regards,
