Idoc number generation

Hello all,

PI team is sending the below two Idocs to SAP and below are the corresponding dates & timestamps of various status in the Idocs (Data fetched from control data of Idoc in SAP).

  • Issue is, as per the "Time of creation" Time stamps(shown below), ideally second Idoc number should be bearing a small number, but this is not happening. How this can be possible?

Header 1 Header 2 Header 3 Header 4 Header 5 Header 6 Header 7 Header 7 Idoc No Status 50 Status 64 Status 62 Status 51 Status 53 Time of creation Last Database update 262179766 15.11.2013;18:26:44 15.11.2013;18:26:44 15.11.2013;19:18:35 - 15.11.2013;19:18:35 15.11.2013;18:26:44 15.11.2013;19:18:35 262180807 15.11.2013;18:17:59 15.11.2013;18:17:59 15.11.2013;19:18:34 15.11.2013;19:18:34 18.11.2013;22:00:44 15.11.2013;18:17:59 18.11.2013;22:00:44

  • In which system the Idoc no is generated, when an Idoc is coming from PI to SAP? (Assumption is that Idoc number will be generated in SAP only).
  • At which status will an Idoc enters into the SAP system?
  • If Idoc number is generated in SAP, at which step an Idoc number is attached to an Idoc?

Any pointers on the above queries would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

    Hello Vamsee,

    As per my understanding, this is possible if there are 2 different no. ranges are being used as per some criteria.

    Check in SNRO if you find 2 different no. ranges for these range.

    another reason can be serialization of Idocs, but I am not very sure about it that how it might be affecting. Just adding a possible scenario.

    Warm Regards,
