Reproducing the Issue

Case 2:

  1. Right-Click Custom Business Object. (.bo)
  2. Select Create Screens.
  3. Select any Screen Creation option and click OK.


Case 1:

This issue happens when you have used special characters (*"?/#$%&) in the Description of the BCO which you are trying to use to create the BC Views.

Case 2:

This error is also known to happen if you have maintained other special characters (<>) in the Label annotation of the Extension Fields in your Custom Business Object. The special character will cause issues particularly if the labels have been maintained before triggering the automatic creation of screens.


To resolve the issue, remove all the special characters from the Description / Label and try the steps again.
