update was terminated


In VA01 tcode, we created a sales order and it generated sales document number. When we go to VA02, it was throwing an error 'Express document "update was terminated" from the author'.

How can we rectify this error??

Ur help is highly appreciated.....

Hi Ravindra,


but I found nothing.

Very correct. When the new record

was about to be inserted in database tables,

the system found that a record with the same

primary key was already there, and hence,

it ABORTED the Update Task.

Hence, -- I found nothing.

2. For checking,

try VA01 with previous year 2005

and see that does it still give error / dump.

3. Another options

for 2006, define the number range

to SOME OTHER INTERVAL and not (74101 to 74200)

Some kind of above permutation is required

to detect the problem.

I hope it helps.
