Hi There,

WIth the answers above, I still wonder why could your DEV system could post more than 999 line items.

Cause and prerequisites

In FI the posting line has a three-digit line item number (BSEG-BUZEI).

For note 117708, or the exit, they are trying to avoid posting more than 999 lines only.

This is standard SAP maximum cap per document. Standard SAP can not accept more than 999 lines per document. If you have this scenario you either need to reduce your lines or activate user exists at transaction levels where you can activate a split after every 900 lines and move the entry to a clearing account and in the next entry clear the clearing account and post the complete document. Hope this helps.
