VBOF - Not updating with Maximum no of items in FI reached.

Hi All,

When updating the billing documents in VBOF, iam getting error (not updating) due to Maximum no of items in FI reached message. Did you face this kind of issue, what would be the best possible solution? Is there any SAP note for this.

    Check these

    [System limitation of 999 line items per FI document|]

    [Maximum number of items in FI reached Message no. F5 727 |]

    • FYI

      Firstly the program for VBOF determines (depending on its parameters) the amount of billing documents. A new pricing is then carried out for these documents (with a pricing type which simply redetermines rebate conditions, that have not yet been totally calculated).

      - If the program produces a different result with regard to the rebate conditions, the rebate conditions are updated.

      - If these changes affect accruals, an additional accounting document is created, which is adapted to accruals.

      - If errors occur during pricing, the billing document cannot be updated (see error log).

      - If the net value of a billing document changes (for example, because a rebate condition has been created retroactively, which should not exclude a non-rebate condition), this also means that the billing document is not updated.

      In addition to that:

      What problems can occur when updating the billing documents ?

      It may be that a document cannot be updated. For example, the following errors may have occurred:

      - Pricing error

      - Billing document blocked

      - Net value of the billing document has changed

      - Error in accounting transfer

      - etc.

      In this case the error situation must first of all be rectified (e.g. correct settings) and then the update can be carried out again.

    May be the system is trying to post an accoting document with the difference amount which is having more than 999 lin items. There is a possibility of summarising FI lin items using SAP not 36353, but bit risky.
