3100772 - ExecuteFromDB or GetFromDB not retrieving Current Data


You are trying to retrieve data recently saved to the database using <query>.ExecuteFromDB() or <business object instance>.GetFromDB() in your ABSL script but the previous data is returned.


  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio
  • SAP Cloud for Customer


The data returned is the state of the instance as read from the database before the start of the current transaction. This means if the data is changed and saved in a separate open transaction, the new data will not be returned in the current transaction.


You will need to account for this system behavior in your custom implementation. As a suggestion, a "Refresh" of the screen before execution of the ABSL will ensure the current data will be returned.
