VA01 BDC does not return sales order number


Hi All,

I am using BDC to create sales orders using transaction VA01. Most of the time I have no problems using this method. However, for some orders no order number is returned.

I know that BDC is not the best way of doing things, but we have customized the sales order screens a lot and therefore can't use BAPI, so we need to use BDC.

I have used display mode 'A' when calling the transaction and I know that all the screens populate correctly. Then when the order saves, no order number is provided. The just created order can't be found by searching using the sold-to party, so the order appears to not have created. However, when I look in the table of messages returned from the transaction, there are no errors.


Thanks in advance,
