Phantom text in SD Module

Former Member
0 Kudos

During sales order create, with reference to a quote, the text from the quote sometimes gets saved with XXXXXXXXXX as a document number. It does not get copied into the order referencing the quote. When subsequent documents get created, with or without referencing, they pick up the phantom text. This is happening one or two times a day. We are deleting the phantom text using function module DELETE_TEXT.

Text objects: VBBK & VBBP

Text names: XXXXXXXXXX & XXXXXXXXXX000010, 20, 30, etc.

Hello Jim,

do you have any dumps in update task (SM13)?

Did you implement any SD user exits?

The 10 Xs are the the temporary number that is used in VA01 before you press save. VA01 then allocates a new document number and replaces the Xs in all internal data fields and tables with this number.

From my feeling, sometimes the texts are saved to database before the new number is assigned.

Make sure that no COMMIT WORK is used in any VA01 user exit, because this may trigger premature update of texts.

You hit the nail on the head. We had a userexit that was doing a commit work.
