Runtime error MESSAGE_TYPE_X when opening an infopackage in SAP BW

You sometimes run into error message 'Runtime error MESSAGE_TYPE_X' when you try to open an existing delta infopackage. It won't even let you create a new infopackage, it throws the same error. The error occurs in the FUNCTION-POOL FORM RSM1_CHECK_FOR_DELTAUPD.

This error typically occurs when delta is not in sync between source system and BW system. It might happen when you copy new environments or when you refresh you QA or DEV boxes from production.

Solution :


Try to open a existing full infopackage if you have it, you will be able to open existing full infopackage because it is not going to check delta consistency. After you open the infopacke remove the delta initialization from the infopackage as shown below.

Got menu scheduleer -> Initialization options for source system ->Select the entry -> click on delete button





After that you will be able to open existing delta infopackage. You can re initialize the delta and start using the infopackage.

Follow the steps in the note 852443 , If you do not have a existing full infopackage. There are many troubleshooting steps in this note. You can go through all of them or do what I do follow the steps below.

1. In table RSSDLINIT check for the record with the problematic datasource.
2. Get the request number (RNR) from the record.
3. Go to RSRQ  transaction and enter the RNR number and say execute, It will show you the monitor screen of actual delta init request.
4. Now change the status of the request to red.

That's it. Now you will be able to open your delta infopackage and run it. Of course you need to do your delta init again as we made last delta init red. These steps have always worked for me, follow the steps in the OSS note if this doesn't work for you.

Leave a comment if you have any questions, I will try to answer if I can.
