Number ranges skipped

Hello All,

I am encountering an issue related to number ranges. We have set number range object as RV_BELEG as not buffered in our system. Even then system is skipping sales order number ranges.

For example, if we have saved sales order number with 02, then next time it skips 2-3 numbers and take 04 as next sales order number.

So any of you have encountered with the same issue or any idea regarding this, kindly revert as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

    Is it happens rarely then in such case , kindly check if the Network was down at the time of saving the Sales Order so in such case system will save the Number internally but will not be updated at Table Level. I had also faced the same issue in case of Invoice but we had resolved it as we had linked it with a Z Program.

    Best Regards,

    Gaps are caused by a process dumping. when the document creation starts,a document number is taken. Then a second process takes another number. The original process fails and rolls back leaveing an unavoidable gap.

    Here's my view on this issue:

    1. You can create a sales order. Then few days later, it can be deleted for some reason.This is not a mark for deletion. It really deletes the sales order from the primary tables. This is SAP standard functionality.

    2. The suggestion is simply to prepare a report from the production server on a monthly basis and from there you can get the missed document numbers/category. This is one of the reasons that sales orders are NOT DELETED but rejecting with a reason for that rejection so that the number of the document will be available while the report preparation from where we can get the details.

    You can re-set the number range back to the beginning and it would automatically fill. However, It is definitely NOT recommended.
