System trying to restart posting documents at first number for fiscal year
Both our Finance and Logistics teams are receiving an error message stating that a new document cannot be created because the number in the relevant number sequence for the current fiscal year has already been used. The system is trying to reallocate the first number in the range for the fiscal year.
Documents in these number ranges have been successfully created since the start of this fiscal year (01.August.2008) and are still available on the system. The most recent successful postings were Friday of last week.
The only change known on the system since that time is a system restart during the weekend.
A subsequent restart of the system has not resolved the issue.
Numer ranges and their allocation to document types in the IMG seem fine and unchanged
Number range allocation is internal
No patches or other changes have been applied over the weekend
Can anyone suggest a reason why the system would suddenly start doing this and a potential solution?
