Number buffer help


Sometimes we get gaps in the number range of our PO's created from EBP ie.






and so on. But we are not sure what to do to fix the problem. This link: tells about the number buffer. But what to do?

We have looked in SNRO object EINKBELEG it returns "No buffer active"?

Should we set the parameter nobuf/max_no_buffer_entries to 1?

If the solution is to set the parameter nobuf/max_no_buffer_entries to 1 will it have other consequences in the system? In this link (one number in the buffer): I only see benefits?

So why is the standard 1000 and not 1?

Anyone who can help me understand the behaviour of the number buffer - and solve our problem 😊


System: SRM server 5.0 (EBP 4.0)

Senario: Classic Scenario

    The gap is coming from SRM and not from ECC.

    please look at SRM PO number range.

    In the standard, the buffer is taking 10 by 10 PO number.

    you can esaily set no buffer.

    Kind regards,
