Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 11.5.9 to [Release 11.5.9 to 11.5.10]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


System generated transaction numbers appear to skip more often than before causing gaps in the numbers. This appears to happen more after an upgrade.

This note discusses some possible causes and solutions for skipping document sequence numbers.


If you need to implement GAPLESS sequencing, please review <Note 197212.1>, How To Setup Gapless Document Sequencing in Receivables.
Using Gapless Sequencing is the only way to ensure no gaps in the system generated sequence numbers.
