When trying to execute a Query an error is occurring: Cannot execute. One or more of the following fields are longer than 512: ' *** '.
SAP systems that do not have the Winshuttle Function Module installed.
This is an SAP limitation. The field referenced in the error contains more characters than 512. This can be seen if viewing the field within the Query script under "Length".
Install the Winshuttle Function Module within SAP as this helps handle the limitation. The Winshuttle Function Module is certified by SAP and considered a requirement from versions 10.7 and higher.
As a workaround you can 1. Identify different tables to use instead of the one referenced in the error. As long as they, combined, contain less than 512 characters. 2. Create a Transaction script using GUI scripting mode. Then map the field as a download field.
