Maximum number of items reached in FI--help required please


How to avoid the situation(error)

Po raised for some 300 line items.

PO consists of 3-4 header conditions and all the conditions are linked to a differrent GL account all together.

GR to be done against PO.

System fails to post the document because of the error 'max no of items reached in FI(since counter limit for accounting document lines is 999).

This is most likey to happen frequently in my requirement since the POs are often consisting of 200-300 line items and alsmost 2-3 conditions minimum.

In addition to that we have thought of going for purchase account management which means that effectively 2 more additional postings in GR.

So all in all for every line in PO there could be atleast 6-8 accounting entries getting generated at the time of MIGO or any goods movement.

This very commonly happens in Sales issues also and in Invoicng also.

I have raised this issue earlier also but could not got any concrete answer.

Many suggested to go in for split GR but how far that is advicable.

There is summerization option but I am really not getting any que out of some notes I read and some forum postings I read.

Can anyone suggest me a simple step by step approach for achieving this and basically how it works and would be helpful for me.

I repeat and request you all to help me in this.If someone has already done this then please share the knowledge.

    I suggest as well to split your goods receipts.

    However, since this is not really a common issue, let me know what the system does.

    do you get a dump? Do you get an error message? if, what is the error message number? what does the long text of the error suggest? Have you searched OSS for the error message number?

    The issue what you mentioned is really a very painful and most complex one which we are also researching. OSS suggested a OSS note and it didn't work. Yes, as you said, we have that issue in MIRO for now....I am afraid, it would comeup in MIGO as well, then, I will have no sleep, for sure....suprizingly, OSS is working very slow on this issue to my surprize. The OSS note doesn't clearly specify what to and how to summarize. We have different issues in for number of tax lines exceeding 500 lines...and GR/IR lines exceeding on another end...we thought if we can't fix tax lines, at least we can work on GR/IR lines but neither one is successful....We have this issue in ECC 5 for the past 3 months...with real good expert in each functional space in the team, we couldn't fix it yet!!!

    just FYI
