Copy Express Runtime Error Large File Restrictions


We are trying to move 44,000 BP's from our testing environment to our Production company DB using Copy Express. SAP BO 2007 A SP00 Patch Level 38.

We have tried sectioning the data using filters and have researched notes and forum.

Copy Express continues to fail with a Runtime Error.

In some instances, when we attempt a large number of record transfers, the program hangs without producing errors or a log.

We have found Note

Which speaks of a design restriction within Copy Express which forbids large files copying.

Can anyone tell me what the limitations/rettrictions are?

We need to move this data to go-live.

Hi Dana,

When copying such amont of BP data, not only Copy Express, all other hardware and software resources need to be checked completely. Instead of waiting to find the exact limitations, my suggestion is try selection from small to large in small step. In this way you can test the limit.

BTW, have you successfully copied any BP data so far?
