    this is funny, when you added / changed the reference number, then you should save the document and check it immediately afterwards. It should be there 😊)

    Maybe someone has changed the fields while you were away. Go to FBV3 and display the change documents (if any) for your document.

    But I think you simply mix up the fields called "Reference" in SAP. When speaking of FBV4, then you mean the Reference field in the document header, (V)BKPF-XBLNR. This is the only "reference" field you can change in FBV4.

    However, when creating the documents and entering the line items, on item level (!!!!), there are some additional "reference" fields, 3 in total. They are called Reference 1, 2 and 3, field names XREF1, XREF2, XREF3. Those are item level fields which are not visible (and changeable) in FBV4, only in FBV2, for instance.

    Hope that helps, points welcome 😊
