ABAP Dump ASSIGN LENGTH 0 SAPLSNR3 LOCAL Buffer - BI content installation

Hi all,

I get the following ABAP dump while installing the BI content and choosing the grouping ' in dataflow before' in Bi 7.0 SP 13

Short text

Program error: ASSIGN with length 0 in program "SAPLSNR3".

Error analysis

In an ASSIGN statement in the program "SAPLSNR3" a field symbol with

length 0 should have been created. However, this is not possible.

length 0. This is not possible s

Trigger Location of Runtime Error

Program SAPLSNR3

Include LSNR3F01

Row 178

Module type (FORM)


How to correct the error

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



"SAPLSNR3" or "LSNR3F01"


I did search for the same error discussion in the forum. However most of them are dealing with "LOCAL_ENTRY_EXISTS" while this dump is related to "LOCAL_BUFFER".

Kindly let me know if anyone has similar issue and got it resolved.

Thanks in advance
