IMPORTANT REMINDER:

Please note that in Oracle Receivables GAPLESS document sequencing only applies to INVOICES. You can use document sequences to uniquely number Receipts, Bills Receivables, Adjustments, and other data objects, but they are not guaranteed to be gapless. The implementation steps detailed in this document only applies to Invoices.

  

This document covers setup specific to gapless document sequences. For a more general discussion on document sequences in Receivables, please review Note 1086565.1, How To Setup Document Sequences In Receivables.
 
In some countries, it is a legal requirement that transactions are numbered in a gapless sequence for audit purposes.

Gapless document sequences ensure that there are no gaps or missing numbers in your document sequence. By using this feature in tandem with the Copy Document Number to Transaction Number setting in your transaction source definition, you can generate gapless transaction numbers.

This document provides steps on how to setup Gapless document sequencing within Receivables.
