3445899 - Warning R8418 and R8569 when activating DataSource /IBP/LOCATION_ATTR


The following warning messages occur during activating DataSource /IBP/LOCATION_ATTR:

The even-numbered length of the DEC field HOLDINGCOSTPCT can cause problems
Message no. R8569
You want to use the field HOLDINGCOSTPCT in the extract structure for DataSource /IBP/LOCATION_ATTR. This field has a field of type 'DEC' (or 'CURR' or 'QUAN') with an even number of characters.
This can create problems since the length resulting from calculations in ABAP (for example, in extractors or Customer Exits for extraction) is too large to be inserted in the database later (PSA in BW), causing a short dump.
This warning is only relevant when the maximum length of this field is exceeded during extraction, for example when the field is expanded in the Customer Exit through a calculation.
More information and a remedy can be found in SAP Note 641744.


Application component SCM-IBP-INT-ECC-TS-IO of DataSource /IBP/LOCATION_ATTR does not exist
Message no. R8418
You tried to assign a DataSource to the application component SCM-IBP-INT-ECC-TS-IO. However, this application component is not entered in table RODSAPPL as an application component.
System Response
The DataSource is saved, but in BI it appears under node NODESNOTCONNECTED.
You have probably not yet installed the application component hierarchy from the Business Content.
You install the hierarchy with Business Content.
