Data Buffer Exceed Error While Retrieving SAP Table

This is the second interpretation of this error. Without extending it, let’s find out what the reason is!


Firstly let’s look at the following error message.

[FATAL]: repository.job_dfkkop_0_1.job_DFKKOP - tSAPTableInput_1 DATA_BUFFER_EXCEEDED

When you try to read data that exceeds the buffer, you get an error called by RFC_READ_TABLE, which returns an exception: DATA_BUFFER_EXCEEDED.


It should (if possible) limit / reduce the number of columns (fields) that you want to download from the SAP system. In that, you will reduce the amount of memory allocated and do not exceed the same buffer which is set to 512 characters.


Add property “api.use_z_talend_read_table” = “true” in Advanced settings section in tSAPTableInput component.
