  • In the SM21 syslog there is the message:  R6 3  Work process is being terminated
  • In the SPO WP trace file there are entries like the following at the time of the issue:
      • *** ERROR => RFC: rfctr_init_handle: gui proto vers 0 [abrfcsys.c   7697]

      • *** ERROR =>   job 99642/1 found as current job -> processing will be aborted due to fatal error [rspojobs.c   1274]

Overview

  • Problems occur during the data transfer by the old version of Access Method F
  • The old version of Access Method F is not supported. Only Access Method G, or the new version of Access Method F is supported


Procedure

  • How can you check if you have the new or the old version of Access Method F?
    • Does the SAPLPD window open when printing with Access Method F? If yes, then you are using the old version.
    • Does the Windows printer selection popup appear when printing with Access Method F? If yes, then you are using the new version.
    • No popup is appearing, yet the frontend printing is correctly happening? The "No device selection at front end" option is likely enabled in your Output Device in transaction SPAD.
  • As described above, there is no support for the old version of Access Method F.
    If you are using the old version of Access Method F, you either have to switch to Access Method G, or execute the description of SAP Note 2028598 .

  • For further details please see SAP Note 821519 .
