Missing billing documents.

Hi Gurus ,

We are facing an issue where a list of 100 billing documents are missing in the list of invoices generated in the system.

On one day - invoices with numbers 1 to 1000 are generated, the next day the invoice number picked is from 1100 onwards.

(this is illustration only).

We had checked the number range assignment. Its fine with no change made to the number range as well as the assignement to the billing document type.

Please let us know if any of you faced such issue before and the areas to be checked in such cases.

regards,

Krishna

      Normally this is a problem of the buffer - which appears normally when you are having 2 or more application server.

      The buffering means that every application server is holding numbers during the day.

      Server 1 gets the numbers 1 -100.

      Server 2 gets the numbers 101 - 200.

      When the invoices are created at server 2 the invoices start at 101 - for every used number the application server receives a new one from the central instance.

      So server 2 can create the invocices with number 500, 620, 999,... while server 1 is still buffering the numbers 1 - 100.

      These numbers will be used when server 1 is creating an invoice - perhaps some month later.

      If server 1 is restarted the buffered numbers are lost.

      Hope this was helpful.

    Krishna,

    Is the buffer activated for your number range?

    also check Note 19050 - Gaps in document number sequence for billing docmts.

    Regards,

    Raghu.

    Hi Krishna,

    Do you have plantwise number ranges or centrally (one number range for all plants).

    If it is a centrally assigned number ranges, then there is a chance to jumping of number ranges in customizing.check it

    Thank you,
