Changing Picking Number

When I run picking list (VL70), I get the list of the delivery order number. When I select one DO# and click on "print preview" icon on top, I get the normal print preview but when I do the print preview again, I get a new picking number on the print preview. When I continue on doing that print preview, I keep on getting a new picking number.

I checked my delivery order number document flow (VL02n) and found out that the picking number is not yet assigned on that DO#. The only time a picking number will be assigned to the DO# is when I click the process button (button before the print preview).

Question:

1. Is it normal to get a new picking number everytime you click on that print preview button?

2. How can I stop SAP from assigning new picking number everytime you do the print preview?

Please help. Thank you.

    Hi Anwer,

    As per my knowledge we can not control the picking request,the picking request is nothing but date on which date the picking

    taken place,total picking records for the day will be issued by same date EX:20111202 that is 2011.12.02 like this the picking

    request will be generated.

    When ever you pick the goods in delivery that time only it will be generated.

    Regards

    Ram

    • Print preview is generated based on the print program that you have assigned to your picking list output type. So check the program on why it is generating a new number? When you say a new number is assigned, what is that number? Normally the delivery number is printed in the picking list. If you see some other number, then ask your ABAP'er what is that number and why it is keep on increasing, during print preview. So to answer your question,

      1. Is it normal to get a new picking number everytime you click on that print preview button?

      - This is NOT normal.

      2. How can I stop SAP from assigning new picking number everytime you do the print preview?

      - Check with your ABAP'er on the program assigned to picking output type (t.code V/34). Might be a bug in the program.
