### ABAP runtime errors CONVT_NO_NUMBER

Posted:

**Tue Sep 30, 2003 10:46 pm**in my system log got this error

AB0 Run-time error "CONVT_NO_NUMBER" occurred

short dump error (there are over hundreds of these short dumps)

ABAP runtime errors CONVT_NO_NUMBER

Unable to interpret "*" as a number.

Error analysis

The program attempted to interpret the value "*" as a number, but

since the value contravenes the rules for correct number formats,

this was not possible.

How to correct the error

Whole numbers are represented in ABAP by a series of numerals with a

sign in front of them if necessary.

The following floating point number representations are possible in

ABAP:

[sign][mantissa]E[sign][exponent]

[sign][whole number part].[fractional part]

z.B. -12E+34, +12E-34, 12E34, 12.34

If the error occurred in an ABAP program of your own or an SAP program

that you modified, try to correct it.

If the error occurred in a non-modified SAP program, you may be

able to find a solution in the SAP note system.

If you have access to the note system yourself, use the following

search criteria:

using this <Run-time error "CONVT_NO_NUMBER" occurred> as the search entry,

i have a list of oss notes which match <abap runtime "CONVT_NO_NUMBER" occurred>

any guidance to what is wrong?

thanks
