Error Message in Subcontracting challan processing

Dear Experts,

Here i am facing problem in processing Subcontracting challan. As per clients organisationsl structure we have two company codes and one plant for each company Code.

As per excise registration, here two Subcontracting series groups are maintained. Number range maintained for the object - J_1i57FC for two series group is same.

The number range is - 0000020001 to 0000029999.

While day to day processing of subcontracting challan, challans are created with same number for two different series group. For example challan number 20001 is posted, Fully Reconcilled and completed for series group - 44.

But again the challan number 20001 is created for series group 64 as per number range assigned to series group 64.

When i am trying to refer the challan 20001 for different company and series group in Goods receipt, it issuing the message - Challan quantity has been fully reconcilled.

If i will check status of subcontracting challan 20001 for series group 64, it shows status posted only.

Please guide me, whether we cant assign the same number range for two different series groups or there is any mistake in Challan processing or any note is available on the issue.

Thanks in advance

As per SAPNote 542862 - FAQ: Country Version India (CIN) General MM queries;

QUESTION: - In the Subcontracting Challan, How should I maintain number ranges for each series group?

ANSWER: - Subcontracting Challan number ranges should not overlap between series group.

For e.g it should NOT be as follows:

Series Group S1 : 000010000 to 000050000

Series Group S2 : 000020000 to 000050000

You should have it like below;

Series Group S1 : 000010000 to 000050000

Series Group S2 : 000060000 to 000090000

So you should always have different no. range for Subcontracting Challan as per Series Groups. Same No. Range should not be used even for two different Series Groups.
