Short Text
"*" cannot be interpreted as a number

What happened?
Error in the ABAP application program.

The current ABAP program "RS_ENQ_ADMIN" had to be terminated because it found a
statement that could not be executed.

Error analysis
An attempt was made to interpret value "*" as a number.
As this value contravenes the rules for displaying numbers correctly,
this was not possible.
