    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    |Error analysis 
    | An exception has occurred which is explained in more detail below. The 
    | exception is assigned to class 'CX_SY_IMPORT_FORMAT_ERROR' and was not caught 
    | in procedure 
    | "LIST_GET_PROPERTIES" "(FUNCTION)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING clause. 
    | Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated this 
    | exception, the current program was terminated. 
    | The reason for the exception is: 
    | When attempting to IMPORT the object "LIST_LINES", there was a format error. 
    | Unable to read an IMPORT dataset.
    | The dataset may have been processed using SQL and is 
    | thus no longer readable for the IMPORT.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |Information on where terminated 
    | The termination occurred in ABAP program "SAPLSLST", in "LIST_GET_PROPERTIES".
