Internal Batch Number Assignment in Process Order Not Unique

Hello,

We have a problem with automatic batch number assignment.

In our ERP system batches are automatically created when posting a goods movement (with movement type 101, 701, 561, ...) and at process order release. All batches have an internal number assigned to them by the system. The number range object is BATCH_CLT, so all batches should be unique at client level. So the situation that one and the same batch number exists for two materials should not exist.Unfortunatelly - it does in our system!

My question is: What can be the reason for this? How can we prevent one and the same batch number being assigned more than once (to more than one material)?

We do not use user exits for batch number assignment. Batch numbers are not being entered by hand. In my investigation I found out that all wrong/ not unique batch numbers were created at process order release. Still, I am not sure if this is not a coincidence.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Rosen,

    You have to explicitly define the batch level as 'Unique at client level'. OMCE.

      Rosen,

      Glad you have solved your problem!

      From your first post...

      All batches have an internal number assigned to them by the system.

      ...which was not really true - your batch numbers were contained in the LSMW data file and therefore manually assigned. It would have been somewhat easier to troubleshoot had you mentioned these circumstances.

      The problem you mention is a common issue during initial data loads, with many types of data objects, and not just with batches.

      Anyhow, all's well that ends well.

      Best regards,

      DB49
