Lost of sequencial number when creating a material master


My problem is:


1 - At MMNR - position of interval = 10 (internal)

2 - The user try to create a material (system generate number 11)and in the midlle of the transaction he gave up.

3 - Then when he starts again, the system begin to create material 12 but number 11 was not created.

Someone knows how to solve it?

the number is determined when you start creating material master, if you leave without saving, then the number is lost.

there is no solution, exept you code this yourself in an user exit like checking the existing material number for gaps and use then this gap-number instead of the next from the range. but keep in mind that 2 users can create materials at the same time, you have to avoid that you assign both users the same gap-material number.
