Error Message : N/A
When trying to start an Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) job in SAP, InputFiles, responsibility, OutputFiles, and directory have to be specified. However, the SAP R3_SET_SELECT_OPTION length of parameters is limited to 45 characters when combining with R3_ACTIVATE_REPORT.
In the 1st example, option DS_NAME is completely displayed in the new variant. In the 2nd, one line is truncated after 45 characters and therefore not displayed correctly.
Cause type: Defect Root Cause: Opposite from BAPI_XBP_VARIANT_INFO/CHANGE the BAPI_XBP_JOB_ADD_ABAP_STEP does NOT accept values longer than 45 characters. This is published by SAP with Note #2035929. With this SAP will provide an additional Option on the Interface.
