Workflow- Purchase order


When i was working on 800 Client for Workflow configuration i had the predefined template for Release Procedure for Purchase order i like to copy the same template and i have to work on my Business Requirement template if i want to copy that one system is giving the following message .

Please help me on this issue

Prefix number: entry missing for system DEV client 800

Message no. 5W023


Tasks, rules, and workflow definitions require an ID that is unique throughout all systems and clients. In this way, you can ensure that you can transport these objects from one system into another at any time (without restrictions). From a technical point of view, the uniqueness of the ID is ensured by what is known as a "prefix number". You can define a separate prefix number for every system and every client in table T78NR.

System Response

If a prefix number is not defined in the client in which you are currently working, it is not possible to maintain (maintenance terminates).


Maintain table T78NR in Customizing, and create an entry for the system in question and the current client.
