2532218 - BINARY SEARCH towards TABLES parameter of form always returns "SUBRC 8" for valid record


READ TABLE ... BINARY SEARCH is used towards an internal table (standard table) but SY-SUBRC is always set to 8 for valid record, although the corresponding columns are already sorted before the form.

The problem happens under following conditions:

 - The internal table is a formal TABLES STRUCTURE <struc> parameter of a form.

 - The data type of actual parameter is different with the data type of formal parameter.
