Issue with wait step (Invoice Parking Workflow)

Hi Experts,

I am using a workflow for approval of FI Invoices entered through transaction FV60.

I have a wait step of 2 min. as the first step of the workflow.

I have used this wait step as I want to provide time to system to update the VBSEGS table, from which I am fetching the cost center and GL account of the line item of the invoice. This fetching of data is below the wait step.

Now, my problem is that when I change an existing document and click 'save-as-completed', the FV60 screen hangs till 2 min and hence the table VBSEGS is not updated in time. And when the data is fetched, it picks up the old value.

This problem does not occur while creating new document. But while changing the document this error occurs.

I tried to increase the time of the wait step, but the hang time of screen FV60 also increases proportionately.

Please advice.
