Payment Document numbers are skipped and are not in sequence. It is not possible to retrieve them in the system.
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Payment Management Workcenter.
- Navigate to the Payment Monitor.
- You notice that the payment document numbers have been skipped and are not in sequence.
This issue occurs due to buffering in the main memory.
In general, the same number is never allocated twice.
If an instance is restarted, all numbers of all intervals which are loaded are lost.
Even if a number drawn is not used by the program due to a rollback or application design, it is not returned to the buffer and is therefore lost.
This is expected system behaviour.
