BW data Upload issue

Hello Gurus,

We have upgraded our APO system to SCM5.0.

When I am trying to upload upload a flatfile into BI7.0 I am getting an error.

Here are the error details:

Error 1 when loading external data

Message no. RSAR234


Error number 1 occurred when loading external data:

1. Error when reading the file (access rights, file name, ...)

2. File size or number of records does not correspond to the data in the control file

3. Error when generating the IDoc

4. File contains invalid data (errors with an arithmetic operation or data conversion)


Check whether you have the required access rights and whether the data in the control file is correct (file names, record length, number of records, ...). Correct the data in the control file if necessary and check the data file for invalid data (values of the wrong type, values in the wrong format for conversion exit,...). Check whether the file has headers that have not been specified.

I checked all the things and everything looks good. I even tried to upload it into PSA but still the problem persists.

Could anyone please help me out with this

Thanks in advance
