Short text
    Overflow during the arithmetical operation (type P) in program "SAPLSDNT".


What happened?
    Error in the ABAP Application Program

    The current ABAP program "SAPLSDNT" had to be terminated because it has
    come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.

Error analysis
    An exception occurred that is explained in detail below.
    The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_ARITHMETIC_OVERFLOW', was not
     caught in
    procedure "DD_PUT_TATAF" "(FUNCTION)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING
    Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated that the
    exception would occur, the current program is terminated.
    The reason for the exception is:
    An overflow was discovered in an ongoing arithmetical operation with
    operands of type P. Possible causes are:

    1. The result field of type P is too small for the result.

    2. The result or a intermediate result has more than 31 decimal places.

How to correct the error
    The result field must be enlarged, if this is still possible. It may
    also be possible to break up the current process into subprocesses so
    that only smaller values occur.

    There may already be a solution to the error in the SAP notes system.
    If you have access to the SAP notes system first try searching with the
    following keywords:
     "BCD_FIELD_OVERFLOW" (Until release 4.0a, this runtime error occurred at this

    program: The source code of the program
       In the editor, choose "Utilities->More

    4. Details about the conditions under which the error occurred or which
    actions and input led to the error.

    RAISING clause of the procedure.
    To prevent the exception, note the following:
