Since importing a support package stack from SAP, Winshuttle has been generating nightly dumps.
"The current ABAP program was trying to execute an Open SQL statement
and discovered that a value needs to be copied into the database field
type. This copy operation resulted in data loss. Either the data could
not be converted, the data in source was not long enough to fill the
target, or the source was a non-character type structure.
The value was "EN". The ABAP field has type "C" length 2 with 0
decimal places. The target has type "C" length 1 with 0 decimal

- Open the Winshuttle Studio desktop application
- Open Options
- Within the Options menu, go to SAP settings
- In SAP settings, change the Default logon language from EN to E.
- Click OK at the bottom of the Options window

Under SAP credentials maintained in Foundation set-up, the workaround is:
- defining language as 'E' in place of 'EN'
- defining the language as 'D' in place of 'DE'
Please note that these settings cannot be changed in mass. Additional information on this =>
