Oracle Payables - Version: 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 - Release: 12.0 to 12.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On application version 12.1.3 in Production instance, we want to create a new set of payment documents.  To do this, we update our existing payment document sequence as follows:
- First Available Document Number : 533701
- Last Available Document Number : 533750
- Last Issued Document Number : 533700

When saving these changes, we get this error:
Last Issued Document Number must be greater than or equal to the First Available Document Number and lesser than or equal to the Last Available Document Number

So we change the Last Issued Document Number to 533701 and save changes. The error message is avoided, but when a payment is issued, the first cheque number generated skips 533701 and is generated as 533702.

Expected behaviour : For the new payment document set, expected the first cheque number (533701) to be available.
