We have a Document Sequence Analyzer that can automate troubleshooting your setup. Please review <Note 2021711.1> EBS Oracle Receivables Document Sequence Analyzer.

Document sequence numbers are unique numbers that can be assigned to transactions you create in Receivables. This feature is used across the Receivables application in both the Transactions and Receipts workbenches, and in manual and concurrent processes.

This article contains troubleshooting tips for issues regarding Document Sequences. If you are unsure about your setup, please review Note 1086565.1, How To Setup Document Sequences In Receivables.
