Notification Number range problem

Dear All,

I have created few notifications in a fresh server, I found notification number( internal) generates with a gap of 10.

Example: 10000000





How to sort out this issue. I need to have numbers in incremental of 1.

    Can you check & tell with your internal, external number range in IW20 ?

    Does this happen every time, or randomly?

    This symptom does happen occasionally and it is due to the buffer settings for the number ranges. Talk to your Basis team.

    There is nothing wrong with your number range. It appears to be a buffering issue as mentioned by Pete. Buffering is defined via transaction SNRO, the notification object is QMEL_NR. Note 62077 contains more information on this buffering concept.

      Dear all,

      I have checked Notification number range in IW20

      Internal: 000010000000 to 000099999999

      External:A to ZZZZZZZZZZZZ

      Current Number: 10000049

      Also this happens all time, Being itu2019s a fresh server we have created only five notifications all comes up with gap of 10, I have checked buffer in number range its shows 10, but in my development and test server also buffer is 10.problem only in this new server.

      Removal of buffer is not recommended by SAP.

      Deletion of initial entry number range is not possible.

      Dear paul i have checked the Note 62077, There is a option to remove the buffering, but SAP strongly cautioning to do removal of buffering.
