I am working on a BDC. I have few doubts regarding the same.

I am working on My version SAP ECC 6.0.

In BDC_OPEN_GROUP FM, what could be the possible values for the parameter 'KEEP'. We genereaaly use 'X' for keeping the session after processing.

Here, in my program, they have assigned a constant variable(to the KEEP parameter) whose default value is '/'. What difference would it make if we use '/' instead of 'X'.

While executing the program, I am getting an error saying '<b>BDC_OPEN_GROUP, lock date ./. is invalid</b>'.

What could be the possible reason for this. Can anyone help on the same.

The allowed values for the field KEEP are either 'X' or SPACE

the value '/' is not allowed

We pass this symbol SLASH generally in Direct input programs for the fields where there is no data required

So chage it if it is not direct input method.

Allow 'X' means the session will be kept in the system for future, if it is space the session will be removed from the system
