Phrase Distribution is not working properly

Dear Expert,

We are trying to move the phrase from One SAP system to other SAP System.

In source system, the outbound idocs are in green status however those are getting failed in target system.

In Log, getting following error.

Actually there are 2 scenarios,

Case 1) Complete New phrase created: If I create complete new phrase and then trying to transfer it to target SAP system then it's working fine. [ which means phrase is getting created and also getting updated in target SAP System ]

Case 2) when we are updating a UN description and doing DG filling then phrase number will remain same but it's text gets updated.

Now If I am trying to move those phrases to target system, then I am getting below shown error,

Just a thought, if it's a structural problem then even for new phrase system should give an error which is not the case...

system is giving an error only to earlier created phrases { the phrase which are there in DG Master }

Before posting question, I did analysis at my end and found below note for exactly same problem but even after implementing this note, system is still giving the same error.

SAP Note 2314909 - ALE Data record number exists twice

Can you please guide me to overcome this problem?

Thanking You,

Regards,

Amol Joshi

    Dear Amol

    in the target system you have an "Inbound process" for ALE. For ALE. There are so many pitfalls here to look at (e.g. number range, change number etc.) i can only provide some "idea" what you could try

    1.) I believe for "phrase" inbound we have some "Exit" (at least we have "exits" for outbound). By using them you might get a solution; please check customizing etc.

    2.) in any case: it is a good idea to "debug" the situation

    C.B.

    PS: system is giving an error only to earlier created phrases { the phrase which are there in DG Master } => are you here sure? Problem only happening for "DG related" phrases? This would be really surprising but if so: my "favorite" candidate for "error reason" would be the topic of "Change number" !

    Hi Amol,

    How you are distributing existing Phrases ? one by one or at one go

    Dear Rohit

    sorry: but the topic of Amol is not a topic of the "source" system but of "target" system. The ALE scenario must work in any case (as normally you do not really "manually" distribute the phrases (this is really a very rare case for first system set up, but is not of interest if system landscape is up and running)

    C.B.

    Amol,

    I'm getting the same error "Data record number exists twice" when Idoc tries to update existing phrase in the target system. Have you found a solution and mind sharing?

    Thanks,

    David
