How to fix it ?

Simple – Create number range for the combination.

Step 1 – Go to OMBT and click on the “Groups” icon.

Step 2 – Select the correct checkbox – For example, our error was related to the goods receipt material documents, of type “WE” . So select the checkbox as shown below and click on the pencil icon.

Step 3 – As you can see, number range does not exist for fiscal year 2015.

Let’s create one – Select ‘Insert Year’

And make an entry for FY 2015 and click on the “plus” button.

Now you have made a number range entry for 2015 for document type WE.

Save it. You get the message saying number ranges are not transportable – That’s fine – Just hit OK.

That it. That should solve your problem.
