Effect

The STATE addition indicates whether you want to read the active or inactive version of the text pool. state may have the value A for active, or I for inactive. Inactive text elements are only visible to the user curretly working on them. All other users work with the active version.

In the ABAP Workbench, you can define a list of objects being edited by each user. These objects are saved in their inactive state until the user activates them. If you omit the STATE addition, the system reads the inactive version of these objects, and the active version of all other objects.

INSERT_REPORT_ILLEGAL_STATE: state does not have the value A or I.
