How to break lines longer then 72 characters?

After the EHP8 upgrade we got the dump READ_REPORT_LINE_TOO_LONG and to our surprise the funcionality ‘Downwards-Comp. Line Length(72)” was no longer under Utilities->ABAP Editor

This functionality can be found in Utilities->More Utilities->”Force Line Length 72″



Hope it helps.

      What do we do if the program is a standard program? I get the same error for my function module K_KKB_FIELDCAT_MERGE. I am unable to edit it and the functionality found in Utilities->More Utilities->”Force Line Length 72″ has been disabled for standard programs.

      Kindly help.

      this issue is not with the k_kkb_fieldcat_merge, it is with the program you are running. the function module just copies the program and if the lines are longer than 72, it dumps. go to your program and do what Andrea did above. this will fix the dump.
