Document Number (series)


Hi Expert,

Details : Planing to try run on Sale quotation module in SAB B1 8.81 PL08 which previously was not running in the production.

__Actions__: Document numbering setup has done via administration > system initialization > document numbering. setting as per Document type is Sale quotation , Default series set to Nseries4, First No column defaulted to 1, Next No.column defaulted to 2 and Last No. set to 3.


questions 1: why the first No column and Next No. column cannot be change?

questions 2: why the series column can be rename is there a special like to other table to setup at UF? Just doing the rename it will do?

questions 3: i have ensure the document numbering setup has done but Sale quotation module still unable to use and prompts out

message "To generate this document, first defined the numbering series in the administration". By clicking on the prompts message help file it show 10000521, which I have did so by configuring the document running at administration module.

10000521 help file


To generate this document, first define the numbering series in the Administration module

Diagnosis : You have created a delivery and copied it into an A/R invoice. You tried to add the A/R invoice, but since the document numbering setting for the document type is incorrect, the document was not added to the database.

Procedure :Choose Administration System Initialization Document Numbering .

In the Document Numbering u2013 Setup window, for the requested document type, enter a value for the Last No. field that is greater than the value in the Next No. field.

Please kindly do help on answer my queries.
