Duplicate Key Violates Unique Constraint "Account_Invoice_Number_Uniq"

By

I just discovered a problem in our invoice generation. When I want to validate an invoice I get the following error message. When I look at that message, it looks like the invoice number is not passed correctly to the function ("/"):

"DETAIL: Key (number, company_id, journal_id, type)=(/, 1, 1, out_invoice) already exists."


Does anyone have an idea what is the problem here? I have already over 1000 invoices that worked fine, but suddenly it stopped. I also tried modifying the sequence, but this doesn't help at all.

Because in invoices, the combination of (number, company_id, journal_id, type)=(/, 1, 1, out_invoice) [is unique constraint] is supposed to be unique and number which is supposed to be auto-incremented is not generated. and you already have an invoice with the same combination so it is violating unique constraint. You should check journal sequence of invoice is okay or not it must generate a number and increment it every time.

For me, I found that there was an invoice who was assigned a number of "/" instead of a traditional invoice number.


From my understanding, the "/" is used as a placeholder for "next number in the sequence". Because that was already taken, no other invoices could be Validated.


The solution was to delete the bad invoice with the "/" invoice number (I had to delete a payment from it as well) and re-create it. Afterwards, I was able to validate normally.
