COBK-REFBN seems to have the wrong data in it

We have a financial document, lets say number 1900000001, that has a reference number on the document header (BKPF), of say 117-1. When this document it transferred to CO, the reference number being transferred (COBK-REFBN) is the 117-1, rather than the 1900000001. Why would this be? we want to keep the reference number on the FI document, but we need to have the FI document number, not the reference number FROM the FI document, transferred to the CO document as the reference (REFBN).

Thank You

    Hello David,

    COBK-REFBN is an internal number for the accounting document. It is filled from the accounting document. The logic is like below:


    COBK-REFBN = AWKEY+0(10)

    Please also check my attached picture.

      jason, It looked as though table TTYP controls the format of the AWKEY as well as how it is used for drill downs. For the new entry type, nothing was filled in. For the ones that worked, there was a structure that laid out the AWKEY for those entries perfectly. I updated the definition of the new type, though, and it is still not using the format i want.

      It would seem that this would HAVE to be configurable, since the system is actually putting different formats of data into AWKEY depending on the AWTYP.
