Short dump:In the background, some program will be running in the source system for extracting the data/whatever it is. Due to some problems the program will not work that time the program will raise an error mesage thats end with short dump.

Rectify: Go to the transaction ST22. analyse the error message and find out a solution...restart the job.

Specifies that an ABAP runtime error has occurred and the generated error messages are written to the SAP system database.

To call an analysis method,

choose Tools --> ABAP Workbench --> Test --> Dump-Analysis from the SAP Easy Access menu.

In the initial screen, you must specify whether you want to view today’s dump or the dump from yesterday. If these selection criteria are too imprecise, you can enter more specific criteria. To do this, choose Goto --> Select Short Dump

You can display a list of all ABAP dumps by choosing Edit --> Display List. You can then display and analyze a selected dump. To do this, choose Short Dump --> Dump Analysis.

Goto ST22 and post the error msg..
