In Admin Tools Manage Data / Position -> Create New Position
an error message will raise
"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."
How can this happen?
Earlier Positions had been imported and the column ‘Code’ had been populated.
However if the Position Code is auto-generated then a code must not be put in to the import file.
Navigate to Admin Tools -> Employee Files -> Position Management. Check if External Code is set to ‘Auto Generated’.
If it is set to ‘Yes’ and positions have been imported with external code the sequence will not be reset
in Admin Tools –> Employee Files -> Import and Export Data
Select ‘Export Data’
Select ‘Position’ and click ‘Export’
In Admin Tools -> ‘Monitor Jobs’ click ‘Download’
Sort the positions by ‘code’ and scroll down to the last position and check the code.
In Admin Tools -> Employee Files click ‘Manage Sequence’
Here in this example you will see the current position code is 1002. In the export file the latest code is 1005.
Navigate to Admin Tools -> Employee Files’ -> Manage Sequence -> Select Position
Click ‘Take Action’ -> ‘Make Correction’ and set start to the next free code.
Now it is possible to create new positions via UI.
