Error Message - Number Sequence does not Exist (Fixed Assets)

  • 1.  Error Message - Number Sequence does not Exist (Fixed Assets)

    ​I was in our test environment trying to test numbering sequences for Fixed Asset Numbers. While I was modifying one of them (Fix_2), I deleted it in error. I set it back up again the same way it was before, and I am now when I try to enter a new asset, I am getting the error message "Number Sequence Does Not Exist". I made sure that the new Fix_2 number sequence was selected in Fixed Asset parameters. Is there somewhere else, other than the Fixed Asset Parameters, that would need to have this number sequence selected?

    Hi Marie,

    If this is set up correctly under fixed asset parameters please share some screenshots of the process that you have followed through for creating the number sequence.

    I would help if you posted a screenshot of where you are getting this error message.

    In general, Number Sequences for Fixed Assets are linked not only on the FA parameters form, but also on the FA Groups form. so you might need to select it there as well, but I am just speculating.

    Good morning Marie;

    Based on your error, I assume that you deleted the sequence tied to "Fixed asset number" and not "Fixed asset transfer"?

    A couple of things to try,
    1st place to check is in the "references" fast tab in the Number sequence setup. The "Fixed asset number" should be listed there.  If it isn't, go ahead and add it.  If it is, remove the reference and re-add it.

    If that doesn't work, delete the Fix_2 sequence.  Then run the "Set up number Sequences" Wizard (Org Admin>Common>Number sequences>Number sequences>New>Generate).  Hopefully that will get you to the list of new number sequences it wants to generate, delete everything out of the list except "Area"="Fixed asset" and "Reference" = "Fixed asset number", then finish the wizard.  Update the new number sequence segments as needed, then sure the "next" field is set higher than the highest numbered Fixed Asset.

    The wizard should properly re-assign things.

    ​I would make sure that the "Scope" setting on the "Scope parameters" fast tab is correctly set.  If the number that is using the number sequence is for a global table, and your number sequence is set as company-specific, the code will not find the number sequence.  You can check that simply by prompting for the number sequence from parameters.  If your new number sequence is displayed as a possibility for the setting, then the scope is not the problem.  If the new number sequence does not appear, you should check the scope.
