Hello Experts, We have a very peculiar case in the P12 system. For a particular invoice, there are multiple accounting document numbers getting generated and the respective MM invoice number doesn't exist. When the end user clicks on SAVE option in MIRO, nothing happens. Suppose if save is clicked 4 times, there are 4 accounting documents generated. When moved to the header of each accounting document and clicked on MM invoice, the message dispalyed in MM invoice document number 513***** doesn't exist. This issue also happens for one particular company code and that too for the POs with integrated type (starting with 35*) and also the ones having sales order as account assignment. It is also observed that the issue is happening for some time. Suppose on a later time or date if same invoice is tried for posting it successfully generates a number. Issue is not replicable in Quality environment.

I doubt that this is a standard SAP issue, as SAP programs do not know about your local company codes, and cannot act differently per company code. So you should check for user exits. Use transaction ANST to analyze the MIRO transaction.

Ask your colleagues (if you are an enduser then ask your local SAP support) if there were recent changes made, if there was a change request to fulfill a internal requirement, e.g. a validation / restriction for a certain company code.

We also have plenty times (thousands of posts) about what to do if a document was not saved to the data base. ==> check SM13 for posting failures and ST22 for dumps

Hi Jurgen,

The issue is typically not occurring for all the invoices. It occurs for one invoice for 2- 3 times and 4th time it successfully posts the document. We have checked all the customer enhancements and no fault code found, Unfortunately the old dumps are already deleted and so we cant, at the moment check if any dumps were generated. Any additional help would be very highly appreciated.


this convince me even more that it is custom made. Had you followed my tip and did an analysis with ANST?
