Industry Material Master: Direct Input Error Data in Release 3.x Format

Description

In Release 4.0, there have been changes to the way the error data, which occurs during the transfer of data by direct input, is stored. These changes are primarily intended to ensure upward compatibility in future.

As a result, it is no longer possible to use standard functions (direct input administration, program RMDATINF) to process any error data remaining from a direct input run performed with a 3.x release. For this reason, before upgrading to Release 4.0, check whether there are any direct input jobs that have terminated abnormally or that have been completed with logical errors. If such jobs exist, recover the errors and run the jobs again.

Further notes

You can continue to display the messages of previous direct input runs with program RMDATINF_3X.
