PAXINRVW: Draft Invoice Number Was Skipped (Doc ID 2063518.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Project Billing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On : 12.1.3 version, Invoices

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
A draft invoice number was skipped

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Not to allow the delete of an Unapproved Draft invoice N-1 when already exist an Approved Draft invoice N.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Unapproved Draft Invoice 79 exists for instance.
2. Crediting Draft 78, created Draft 80 (automatically approved) and the Draft 79 is still there
3. Since it is unapproved, user is able to Delete the draft 79 causing the scenario skipping a draft # number,
4. When the draft 80 was created, user no longer sees that the draft 79 was regenerated

Why is the number skipped?  If the draft invoice gets deleted, will the draft number get reused again?
