A job in BODS 4.2 SP14 PL7 fails. The error: Function <Read> does not allow a negative parameter

Hi friends,

I have a job that processes a source file with more than 600,000 lines. When I run this process, I get the error “Function does not allow a negative parameter”.

This error is documented in the SAP note 2834709, where it is mentioned that it has already been fixed since SP 11 and SP12 through a patch.

I already made the update from 4.2 SP 14 PL 1 to 4.2 SP14 PL 7 and … it keeps showing the same error!

Anyone who can help me? Thanks a lot

Best to log a ticket with SAP as it was a product bug and could have very well returned with SP14
