hi Friends,

     am getting the following dump error. kindly help in solving the error.

Runtime Errors         COLLECT_OVERFLOW_TYPE_P                                                     

Exception              CX_SY_ARITHMETIC_OVERFLOW                                                   

Date and Time          21.12.2012 14:21:47                                                         


Short text                                                                                        

    An internal table field has been defined too small.                                           

What happened?                                                                                    

    Error in the ABAP Application Program                                                         


    The current ABAP program "SAPLATP2" had to be terminated because it has                       

    come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.                                

Error analysis                                                                                    

    An exception occurred that is explained in detail below.                                      

    The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_ARITHMETIC_OVERFLOW', was not                

     caught in                                                                                    

    procedure "RESB_SKBED_BRBED_CHECK" "(FORM)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING               


    Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated that the                         

    exception would occur, the current program is terminated.                                     

    The reason for the exception is:                                                              

    The COLLECT statement stores totals in the internal table                                     


    but the values are too large for the type P field intended to store                           



    The name of the field is "MNG01".                                                             

How to correct the error                                                                          

    You should define the field "MNG01" larger in program "SAPLATP2".                             

    The maximum size allowed for fields of type P is 16 (31 digits).                              

    A temporary solution could be to break the process down into smaller                          

    processes so that fewer large sums occur.                                                     


    If the error occurred in your own ABAP program or in an SAP                                   

    program you modified, try to remove the error.                                                



    If the error occures in a non-modified SAP program, you may be able to                        

    find an interim solution in an SAP Note.                                                      

    If you have access to SAP Notes, carry out a search with the following                        



    "COLLECT_OVERFLOW_TYPE_P" "CX_SY_ARITHMETIC_OVERFLOW"                                         

    "SAPLATP2" or "LATP2FR2"                                                                      



    If you cannot solve the problem yourself and want to send an error                            

    notification to SAP, include the following information:                                       


    1. The description of the current problem (short dump)                                        


       To save the description, choose "System->List->Save->Local File                            



    2. Corresponding system log                                                                   


       Display the system log by calling transaction SM21.                                        

       Restrict the time interval to 10 minutes before and five minutes                           

    after the short dump. Then choose "System->List->Save->Local File                             



    3. If the problem occurs in a problem of your own or a modified SAP                           

    program: The source code of the program                                                       

       In the editor, choose "Utilities->More                                                     



    4. Details about the conditions under which the error occurred or which                       

    actions and input led to the error.                                                           


    The exception must either be prevented, caught within proedure                                

    "RESB_SKBED_BRBED_CHECK" "(FORM)", or its possible occurrence must be declared                

     in the                                                                                       

    RAISING clause of the procedure.                                                              

    To prevent the exception, note the following:                                                 

User and Transaction                                                                              


    Client.............. 800

    of the (Include) program "LATP2FR2".                                                          

    The termination is caused because exception "CX_SY_ARITHMETIC_OVERFLOW"                       

     occurred in                                                                                  

    procedure "RESB_SKBED_BRBED_CHECK" "(FORM)", but it was neither handled locally
