Billing document number range

Hello experts,

I have created a new number range for existing billing document types based on sales org and plant. In development it worked fine but in Production the first 3 invoices got the number range 00001, 00002, 00003 but fourth invoice jumped to 00100. After that no other invoice was created but I checked in table and current no. is 00199. I have not maintained any buffer. I can understand nos. jumping by 1 or 2 but 97 is a lot. Any idea why this is happening?

Regards,

Karan

    Hi,

    Can you check your Number range object in SNRO, if any

    If there is no buffer maintained, you can take a look at the userexit  "USEREXIT_NUMBER_RANGE" and check any buffer parameter is maintained

    For Further information, you can refer to SAPTechnical.COM - Skipping of numbers in the SAP Number Range object

    On the other question why such a big range of jump will likely to be beyond ABAP.  There are many situation that could happen such as System Failure which cause rollback etc.  One possibility is to get the time range of investigation and get basis to advise if there is any system issue like performance or failure.  Technically speaking though, the system is not wrong since your buffer size is 100 and the number jumped did not exceeded that number.

    I went through the links given by you guys but what I don't understand is why is system behaving in a random manner. First 3 invoices were in sequence then 00100,00200,00300,00400 and then 00401. Could it have anything to do with batchjob running to create invoice?

      Hi Karan,

      Please get your basis to check if there is any system failure e.g. failed update (SM13) during that period of occurrence .  That's likely your best bet.

      Thanks
