Check the SAP Support Portal for the appropriate Notes and create a customer message if necessary.

An error occurred in the source system.

Caller 09 contains an error message.

Further analysis:

The error occurred in Service API .

Refer to the error message.


How you remove the error depends on the error message.


If the source system is a Client Workstation, then it is possible that the file that you wanted to load was being edited at the time of the data request. Make sure that the file is in the specified directory, that it is not being processed at the moment, and restart the request.
