AS02 transaction variant stopped working after 2 years
Two years ago I created a transaction variant for transaction AS02. This transaction variant suppressed all of the tabs on the master data screen except the General tab. I created a variant transaction to call this transaction using the transaction variant. For two years everything worked perfectly. Yesterday the transaction variant started causing an infinite loop somewhere in the validation portion of the transaction when the changes are saved .
There are three different user exits that call three different forms from the validation module pool when asset changes are saved. When I run the standard SAP transaction, AS02, each one of these three user exits is processed and the changes are committed to the database.
When the transaction variant is used each of these three user exits are repeated indefinitely until the program is stopped or it times out
I have been stepping through the code in the debugger until my eyes are blurry. I still can't find anything. Obviously something is different. I checked all the usual suspects, code changes in the validation exit routines, applied OSS notes, applied GUI patches. None of these things changed since my user said this last worked.
Has anyone ever seen this type of behavior when using transaction variants for this or any other transactions
We are on version 4 .7, patch level 24,
Basis 620, patch level 54
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
