Number range for material document

Hi All

I noticed that in table MKPF, material documents numbers are not in sequence.

As per my understanding, material document should be in sequence, and should not jump. But system is taking numbers which is not a next number of last documents. How come system is picking this numbers and that to difference of 10 to 5 numbers?

Note: number range assignment for material document is correct and system is 4.6c.

Looking for expertu2019s advice.

regards

ravi

    Material Document Number Range would be same for all trxns. For Eg: Transfer Posting, Goods Issue, Goods Receipt & Goods Receipt Cancellation. so Check the Number Ranges Once in OMBW (Not sure Search in SDN Threads Once)

    The system reserves a few numbers in the buffer of the application server. If multiple people do the transactions and they access via different application servers, this can happen.

    For the numbers in buffer for material document, please go to transaction SNUM, Object MATBELEG and click on Display.

    Hope this answers,

    Hi,

    Transaction SNUM, Object = MATBELEG

    The Buffer Flag must have been set.When buffering number intervals, gaps may result in number assignment. The number interval buffer is in the Shared Memory of the application server.

    No. of numbers that must be held in the buffer:

    This number determines how many numbers are reserved in the application server buffer for the intervals.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Regards,
