The problem occurs only if:
- The system is on Support Package 20 (for BW 3.5).
- Note 997880 has been implemented.
- BW 3.0B / BW 3.10 Content
Implement the specified correction instructions. For the SAP BW Releases 3.0B and 3.10, no more Support Packages will be delivered until further notice.
Import Support Package 21 for 3.5 (BW 3.50 Patch 21 or SAPKW35021) into your BW system. The Support Package is available once Note 986892 with the short text "SAPBWNews BW SP21 NetWeaver'04 Stack 21" is released for customers, which describes this Support Package in more detail.
In urgent cases, you can implement the correction instructions.
To provide information in advance, the notes mentioned above may already be available before the Support Package is released. However, in this case, the short text still contains the description "Preliminary version".
