- The Service Operation Colunm will give you details of what kind of actions was trying to get executed when backend raised the error message

- The BO Column tells you from what Busines Object the error message comes

- The BO NODE column tells from what Node of the Business Object the error message comes

13. Check what Business Object raised the error message

- If the Colum BO maintained a ID, like YABCDEFG_HIJKLMNOPQ, error message is raised when you tried to create a new record on a Custom BO

- If the Colum BO maintained SAP standard Business Object namespace , like SALES_QUOTE, error message is raised when you tried to create a new record on a SAP standard BO

14. Check your logic that create records for the Business Object (listed on Column BO) and change it to don't create records using ID that already exist

15. In case you correct your logic, but you are still receiving the erro message, open a SAP incident providing all the details involved, steps to reproduce the issue and authorization to reproduce the same
