Hello Bindu,

If the file is already uploaded with no error so why you want to re-upload the same again ?

Please check is the file having any date like info inside. If yes, pls change the date accordingly and rename the file. Try to upload the same again.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi,

As already experts mentioned their views about the issue, i just want to add one more thing to that, Please compare both files and validate which field has the same values may be the program is written to see same field if there is no change in that field system may throw the error saying already exists,

you can also check the file name by saving in difference name.

AS you said, it is a Z-transaction, please check with the ABAPer to find the exact issue.  Also, if need be changes can also be done.

Hello Himabindu,

May be, You might need to delete the file before re-upload.

Please check the t-code nature and purpose and usage.

Hi Himabindu,

As everyone mentioned, there must be a Validation / check on the document reference no. or other field OR there might be a programming error in your program which is not Clearing the previously uploaded file.

Check the same.

is it BAPI or BDC?

There might be checks for document type/posting date/Reference.

Hi,

Please check whether there is some validation put that the document with same data say for e.g. reference can't be uploaded.

As in our case we have put check document with same reference can't be uploaded so we get same error which you get when users tries to upload same file.

Please check and revert.
