Get Rid of Code Page Errors (CONVT_CODEPAGE)

You usually get these dumps in ST22 with the runtime error as CONVT_CODEPAGE and it says that the character set conversion is not possible. So, how to we get rid of these errors?

These errors are caused when you try to download the file with some special characters in the unicode system. When SAP system is not able to convert the special characters, it ends up with this system dump.

Just add the clause IGNORE CONVERSION ERRORS when you try to open the dataset and all these special characters which cannot be converted into a specific code page will be skipped. You can also add the clause REPLACEMENT CHARACTER space, with this addition, all the special non convertible characters will simply be replaced with space.


Hi, – stumbled upon this website by accident whilst roaming around the net this evening, and glad that I did! I like the page structure and tones, but I should mention that I’m having difficulties when it loads. I’m making use of Shiira 2 web browser for mac, and the top panel won’t align nicely. i am convinced employed the exact same layout on a customer’s web site, but the menu seems Ok on mine. I imagine the mistake is with my outdated browser and I’m assuming it is time to swap!
