Create Sequential Numbering in Message Mapping

We are using XI 3.0 with R/3 Enterprise.

I am working on a scenario:

Webapp to xi to R/3 to xi to webapp to xi to R/3.

Basically, users log onto web site, request invoice details from R/3, dispaly invoice in webapp, pay amount and post receipt into R/3!

As we are posting an accounting document we have to pass accross the accounting document number.

I have tried the following to generate a number for the externally assigned number:

Constant: 9800000000 and A Counter starting from one( with increments of one) add together and map into obj_key field on accounting document header. When I test the mapping, I get the following:

Debug:Start tag [OBJ_KEY]

Debug:Put value [9.7999995E9]

Debug:Close tag [OBJ_KEY]

Is there an easier way to assign a sequential/incremental number into mapping??

    Hi Barry,

    have you tried the standard parrtern?

    I have implemented a simple function in one of my mappings to generate sequqnce nos. Modify the code according to your requirement

    //write your code here

    GlobalContainer globalContainer;

    globalContainer = container.getGlobalContainer();

    Integer count;

    Object obj =globalContainer.getParameter("Count");

    if (obj==null) count =new Integer(0);

    else count = (Integer)obj;

    count=new Integer(count.intValue()+1);

    String szero="";

    String str=count.toString();

    for(int i=0;i<5-str.length();i++)




    return str;
