2062732 - After posting a document in FI, the document does not appear in the system. An Update Termination ( tx SM13 ) occurred leading to a document gap.


  • After posting a document to FI using normal transaction codes (FB01, FB50, VF01 etc) you cannot display the document after posting in FB03.
  • You received an "Express Document"/"Update Termination" notification in the system immediately after posting.
  • There is no sign of the document in the system; no records of the document in tables BKPF, BSEG, BSIS, BSID, BSIK etc and the transaction figures are not updated in GLT0/FAGLFLEXT
  • This situation leads to a document gap in the FI document number range.
