Error analysis

An exception occurred that is explained in detail below. The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_ARITHMETIC_OVERFLOW', was not caught in procedure "SCCR_CHECK_TABLESPACE_ORACLE" "(FUNCTION)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING clause. Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated that the exception would occur, the current program is terminated. The reason for the exception is:   

An overflow was discovered in an ongoing arithmetical operation with operands of type P. Possible causes are:
    1. The result field of type P is too small for the result.
    2. The result or a intermediate result has more than 31 decimal places.
