DME Reference number duplication


I've created several new payment methods with DME's under a new company code and I see the payment reference numbers in REGUT (REGUT-RENUM) have started back at the beginning of the number range for this company, resulting in duplicate reference numbers.

I've created new payment methods with DME in other companies and didn't get this duplication so I don't know why I'm now getting different results under another new company code.

Where is the number range stored for DME payment reference? I remember years ago finding the setting for now payment number is increased incrementally but I can't even find that now.

Any help on how payment reference number is assigned during the DME process?

    There is no specific place where number range is stored but rather an algorithm.

    Please search OSS, i.e.

    515422 - PMW - Number range of reference number for DME files

    775760 - Payment media with identical reference numbers

      This error occurred when a new DME and payment method were created but I don't see anything in the setup that would cause this the error. Do you think copying an existing DME file or OBPM* configuration would have caused this reset? I've done this many times in the past without error.



      Many factors could influence this IMHO.

      It could be OBPM* config or recent upgrade. You might have done it several times before but never after a recent upgrade. Or I.e. have you recently refreshed DEV from PRD? Was it always in the same country and this time it's new country or completely new DME format?

      So the question is good but answer is not obvious.

      best regards,

    I agree this might be update relate since there is no obvious configuration between DME and number range and I have not created a new DME since the applying EHP7 last year and support stacks at year end.

    I will use the program in OSS note 515422 to reset the reference number in table DFPM_NUMB to a higher range. I have tested this in DEV and it works as expected.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
