If it is a customer program (you see the program in the short dump) tell it the developer. She must avoid writing duplicate entries. If it is a program delivered by SAP, report it to SAP. As a rule, such exceptions must be prevented or handled properly.

Yeah this is a standard program of MM01. I hope SAP can help on this. But before contacting them I would like to know if there are any notes avaiable for such errors?

If you want to know if there are any notes, why not go to and search for them?


Yeah I searched but ended in vain.

But, SAP has many notes for the same error for other than MM01 tranaction.

You see what Horst wrote? Do that.

Apparently, you're trying to insert an entry that exists already in MAKT table. Is your material already created?

This is common issue ,faced it many times in previous project. Very recently we faced this issue after EHP8 upgrade.Sales order,delivery,purchase order etc giving dump at random due to old number being assigned.

Since this is standard program,so how do you overcome this in the middle of a project?

You need to setup manually the correct number range or need to check if number range buffering is active ,then need to flush the memory buffer.Please follow this link to reorg/reset ongoing number ranges.

Probably some hundred times discussed already.

You are in MM01, so it is SAP standard, as your information from the dump shows too.

And if the dump is caused by the fact that the program failed to create a duplicate record, then it is usually originated from the fact that the number range is not consistent with the data in your system. And hence a new number which is automatically taken from the number range is identical to an existing master record in your database.

So you need to analyse which numbers you already have used (in table MARA) and if the number range is telling here a different story.

Then think how the data came into the system (IDocs can create material master with external numbers which fall into your internal range) or whether someone (you or your colleagues) changed and transported number ranges.
