Sales orders ONLY in APO and not in R/3

Dear Friends,

I have this peculiar but very critical problem wherein:

APO creates an extra schedule line to an ALREADY EXISTING sales order only in APO with a quantity in decimals like 130.320 PCs or whatever. Also, important to note is that this line has a required date very much in the future starting from 12-2009. Also, this sales order schedule line is non existent in R/3!

- I have checked the R/3 SD tables but nothing which relates to this qty.

- I have checked the sales order changes, but nothing in the history which suggests that someone might have changed it.

- I checked the UOM both in R/3 & APO but nothing.

Now, the problem is that:

How & what created this sales order?

If it is in APO, then y it isnt being sent to R/3 like all the other normal sales orders?

Most critical: APO sees this reqt & automatically creates a planned order (bckgrnd) which is then sent to R/3 as a recpt!!

Thanks in advance 😊!

    Just one more point: we use SCM 5 and ECC 6.

    R/3 is the master for Sales orders creation hence the movement is always unidirectional from R/3-APO - but these "problematic" sales orders are not in R/3 at all, they are only in APO, which is very puzzling!

      This problem was due to the fact that both sales orders & planned orders had a "number range overlap"; we changed the planned orders number range & its fine now! Thanks for all your replies!
