Reproducing the Issue

You send your request via Soap UI or any other system using <BusinessTransactionDocumentReference> tag, and you get the following errors:

  • Create not possible; source object inconsistent;
  • ID of party with role Account missing;
  • Organizational data missing.


This is the expected system behavior. Create Sales Order with predecessor business document reference is currently supported only for Campaign documents and Contract Item (from 2008 release onwards).


If you to create Sales Order as a follow up of a Sales Quote, you can use actions Create with Reference / Add Data with Reference using a PDI Add-On in Sales Order Business Object.

If you need this functionality urgently you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request.
