Unable to Maintain Number Ranges


(System is SAP Enterprise R/3 4.70 - Kernel 620)

I am receiving the following message when I attempt to maintain the number ranges for FI documents (transaction OMR4, second option vertically):

"The transaction is locked by user [My Username] for maintenance"

(Message no. NR023)

The issue possibly arose after being disconnected from the SAP server while I was maintaining the number ranges. When I logged on again and executed this transaction, the message appeared for the first time.

In order to solve this, I attempted to check (with SM01) whether OMR4 was locked, but this was not the case (the corresponding "lock" flag is not activated).

Next, I thought this was the result of function "NUMBER_RANGE_ENQUEUE" being executed on the number range object. However, I would have to request the help of someone with more knowledge in ABAP before attempting anything with the ".._DEQUEUE" function.

If someone knows where I can find this "maintenance lock", and how I can deactivate it, I will appreciate your help.

Thank you in advance.
