    I have resolved it on my own.

    Go to the below path.

    C:\Documents and Settings\Your User ID\Application Data\SAP\SAP GUI

    Rename the folder ABAP Editor to something else(ABAP Editor1, this folder holds the settings for the ABAP editors) and Log off from the SAP.

    On logging in again a new folder with the same name will be created and the editors will start working fine.

      If the SAP Gui is installed in the local system, this is the path.

      C:\Users\<your user id>\AppData\Roaming\SAP\SAP GUI

      Note that the AppData folder will be hidden, you need to unhide the folder by going into control panel of your system
