2634853 - New address number generated by just opening the phone number's pop up without doing any change on the data - ME31k / ME31l / ME32k / ME32l


While you are creating a new contract via ME31K or a scheduling agreement via ME31l you can open the vendor address and the telephone selection to check the numbers. You simply just close the popup with accept button without doing any change in the data. Thereafter saving the document. Hence the system creates a new address number but it shouldn’t because you did not change anything in the already existing address master data. This only happens if you open other telephone numbers or other mobile telephone numbers and click at the accept button.
