"Period missing after 'END-OF-DEFINITION'" message
Sounds like this could be due to some faulty abap program loads. To help resolve this, perhaps you could regenerate programs (SGEN, etc.) or force their regeneration by deleting the program loads for those programs with errors.
I would recommend the following: 1. Attempt to regenerate the program via SE38 2. If regeneration fails: a. Complete the following SQL statements (example here is for program SAPFV45C): DELETE FROM R3QS1DATA/D010LINF WHERE PROG = 'SAPFV45C' DELETE FROM R3QS1DATA/D010L WHERE PROG = 'SAPFV45C' DELETE FROM R3QS1DATA/D010Y WHERE PROG = 'SAPFV45C' DELETE FROM R3QS1DATA/D010Q WHERE PROG = 'SAPFV45C' b. Then regenerate the program via SE38
After our upgrade to 4.5B, we had to perform this several times on various programs. The only downside is performance for the 'compile' if users attempt to use this program after the SQL deletes (step 2a.) and before the regeneration (step 2b.).
Anyway, good luck!

Jim, Hello! We are on an AS/400 release 4.5B. We received a message this processing terminated message: Syntax error in program SAPL080I in include <CONTRO> in line 56 Last changed by SAP Author SAP
Period missing after "END-OF-DEFINITION". This error occurred in the customizing transaction OVAU on Monday afternoon PST. We took the same steps you did. We received the error numerous time. One of our developers was able to get the program to compile. We had our normal backups that night. On Tuesday, we were able to enter the transaction without problem. NO FIXES APPLIED. One note, we applied hot packages 27 - 34 in this machine over a week ago and this was the first time our functional specialist used that transaction since. If you receive any additional information, I would appreciate you passing the info to me. Regards, Greg Nelson
