Missing invoice numbers

Hi All,

We are having a problem in the system. after creating invoice no's 96051557, the system missed three invoice numbers in sequence and direclty gave 96051561.

what could be the reason that the system missed out three invoice no's (96051558,559,560). there is no cancelled documents.

regards

sachin

    Hi Sachin,

    Actually this is a bug in SAP System. Sometimes when you are creating invoices through VF04 (Collective billing), we miss some numbers. We had the same problem and there is an SAP note says, we can't do anything on this.

    Surprisingly, there are some invoice numbers missing with one of our clinet, but we can able to see the accounting numbers generated for this. What we done is we cancelled those accounting documents and re created the invoices.

    Hope this will help you

    Regards,

    Hi Sachin,

    Check the no. range Buffering. Use T-code SNRO & Object as RV_BELEG and select the Display icon. Here system will show you the Buffering settings that you have maintained. Also use the Main menu EDIT--> Set-up Buffering option & explore.

    Hope the above helps you.

    REWARD if it helps you!!

    Regards,

    Hi,

    The system wouldn't miss any numbers unless the buffer for the number range has been specified. Please check RV_BELEG object for SD documents and check whether any buffering has been done over there.

    Hope it helps.

    I agree that this happens when Billing is created through some group batch jobs.

    Check in ALO1, if the missing numbers have been archieved.

    Check VN01, if there are any gaps in number ranges.
