SD Document number range - current number not changing

Hi Gurus,

For sales order (OR), the number range is 1 to 4,999,999. The current number is 995301. In Production system, the current number changes when orders are created. I want to get assurance that when the order becomes 999999, it can go to next number of 1 million. Based on the range, it should be ok.

In DEV system, with the same setup, i change the current number to 996000. Created 5 orders but the current number stays the same.

Shouln't the current number change ? Then i change the number range from 1 to 996000 with current number as 996000. Created few orders in DEV but it still allows me to create these orders. I would expect error. Do anyone of you have experieces with this as described in DEV ? Based on setting in PRD, would it go to 1 million ? Tere is no user-exit used for the number range. Pls provide any suggestions you have. Thank you..Joyce

    Hello Joyce,

    gues that you try to change the number ranges to number range object 'RV-BELEG'. But that one is normally buffered. Means the transaction VA01 .. read the memory buffer and not the table itself.

    you could ( in a DEV ) system reset the number range buffer via SM56. Or simply wait until your DEV System gets restartet.

    Regards Wolfgang

      Hi Wolfgang,

      Thanks for your reply. Where in SM56 do i put the current number ? Once added an entry in SM56, i assume i see the current number updated in VN01 ? This is for object RV-BELEG.

    Joyce, have no fear, your numbers will go to 1,000,000, even all the way to 4,999,999

    What Wolfgang explained is true, there is a "buffering" thing going on. I wouldn't even bother trying to trace the details out.

    If you have a bunch of app/servers each one of those can grab a group of numbers (buffered).

      Hi Bill,

      I believe that the range will go to 1 million when the times comes in PRD system. Somehow i just don't know why the current number in VN01 did not change. Maybe i need to create more orders.

      Thanks

      Joyce
