3027676 - Numbering Rule Missing Error When No Rule is Expected for Customer Invoice

Symptom

You have set up a document numbering rule for documents of type customer invoice for the country India.

You do not require any rule for down payment documents type and want the standard numbering to apply.

But when trying to invoice a down payment request, the following error occurs: Save not possible; document numbering rule missing for India.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Requests view.
  3. Select the down payment request ABC (ABC represents the ID of the down payment request).
  4. Click Invoice and then click Save.
  5. The following error message occurs: Save not possible; document numbering rule missing for India.

Cause

Once there is a numbering rule maintained in the fine tuning activity Document Numbering Formats for Customer Invoicing for your specific country, you have to maintain a rule for each of the individual document types (Credit memo, Down Payment Request, Invoice, etc).

Only when there is no rules maintained all document types are numbered with the standard numbering starting from 1.

Resolution

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Overview view.
  3. Search for the fine tuning activity Document Numbering Formats for Customer Invoicing.
  4. Select the activity and choose Change Immediately button.
  5. Open the Document Numbering Formats for India.
  6. Here you need to maintain a rule for Document Type: Down Payment.
