Enter Journal Document Sequence Duplicate Journal Names Error APP-FND-1206: This Record Already Exists (Doc ID 416959.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 05, 2019

Applies to:

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


In case of journals which use sequential numbering, the user creates two journals with the same journal name of 100 characters.

This journal name has the maximum characters allowed by the Journal Entry form. As a consequence, the following message appears:
"The sequence .. was used to assign a value of .. ''.

After pressing ok, the error below appears:
"App-FND-1206: This record already exists."

In this case, the document sequence is skipping the document number shown in the first message.

If want to discuss this further with Oracle experts and industry peers, we encourage you to review, join or start a discussion in the My Oracle Support General Ledger Community.
