2353661 - CX_BICS_RUNTIME_EXCEPTION dump when opening the Input Help (F4) of a characteristic


When opening the Input Help of a characteristic, the exception CX_BICS_RUNTIME_EXCEPTION in the ABAP program CL_BICS_IOBJ_MEMBER_ACCESSOR is thrown.

The error messages seen in the front-end tool are:

An exception with the type CX_RS_SQL_ERROR_SILENT occurred, but was neither handled locally, nor declared in a RAISING clause

SQL0955C Sort memory cannot be allocated to process the statement. Reason code = "3". SQLSTATE=57011

The same issue may not occur when the query is run at RSRT in HTML mode. When executing it at RSRT in List mode, the query may go into Debug Mode and the same error message above is displayed at status bar. In that case, no dump is thrown.
