Negative Order Value in License Master under VX03

Hi Friends,

We have an issue in production where we are seeing negative value under ‘Order Value’ field of license master. (In VX03)

Also, because of this, we are encountering an ABAP run-time error ‘DYNPRO_FIELD_CONVERSION’ while trying to access the license in VX03N.

As we understand, whenever a sales document is assigned with a specific license, the net value of the same shall be added to the ‘Order Value’ under license master. (Till it doesn’t cross the ‘Max.Value’ maintained for license)

For example, on our test client, when we created two orders with cumulative value of 999 USD, the same has reflected in license master as below: (against a ‘Max.Value’ of 1000 USD maintained)

Also, based on this constraint,  if the current sales order value, on addition to existing license ‘Order Value’, exceeds the ‘Max.Value’ maintained under license, then, the license shall not be assigned to the particular sales order.

So, under normal circumstances, there is little possibility of ‘Order Value’ under license master going negative.

Can you share your experiences under what conditions the ‘Order Value’ under license master may indeed go negative? (In terms of any standard jobs which do regular updates to licenses, license configuration settings that may cause such inconsistencies etc.)

We are working under SAP R/3 4.6C.

    Normally, due to some reason, if sale order have some negative value, then, system would throw this dump error for which, you can have a look at the following note:-

      Hi Lakshmi,

      By taking your inputs forward, we have looked for relevant SAP notes that can fix the observed termination error in VX03N.

      We observed SAP note 976445 detailing the encountered error which can happen when the order that was asssigned with the license (with no deletionsbeing allowed to delink the assignment) is subsequently changed to a higher value crossing the maximum limit specified under the license master.

      The fix on implemeting the note shall correct the negative value in the database. Effectively, though termination is avoided, we can’t keep using the license post this with a subsequent deletion or deactivation of the same being recommended.

      Sharing just for the benefit of fellow consultants.
