    As per accounting entries created when releasing invoice/ delivery to FI.

    You can have not more than 999 line items in FI accounting document.

    Eg: If invoice/delivery has accounting entries-

    - sales revenue a/c

    - sales deduction

    - tax account

    Then in invoice/invoice you cant have more than 333 line items i.e 999 / 3 = 333.

    in case of delivery:

    Inventory a/c

    COGS a/c -

    so max line items in delivery will be 999/2= 498

      thanks for reply.

      i checked in delivery but only 310 items are there.

      so system should allow to do PGI but its not happening.i told in earlier mail this is export process & all the material is batch manage.only freight charges duty & revenue charges are there.

      suggest me.

    Reason for the error is A line item has a three-digit item number in FI and therefore the system cannot process more than 999 items for each document.

    There are two alternative approaches that conform to the standard:

    1. VLSP: subsequent delivery split => 499 items for each delivery

    2. Note 36353 and related notes aggregate the FI documents so that the error message no longer appears

    My suggestion is to go through the Oss note 36353 for summarizing FI documents
