SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to Business Configuration and then select Overview.
  • Choose Migration of Employee Data.
  • Execute the Migration file in Simulation mode.
  • In the third step, you will get the error, Employee inconsistent; employee ID in Identification missing


  • Number range configured for employee in Business Configuration is of static nature.

  • The system at runtime expects the length to be respected in such case.
  • Suppose, if you have maintained the length as 13 and the employee ID passed is AEXXXXXXXX. System expects the value to come as AE000XXXXXXXX to process the same.


  • If you want to use the static option the length should be respected and the Employee ID in the file needs to be modified accordingly ( Length 13 in this case ).
  • If you want to process the same file then in that case the prefix should be changed to none and the begin number should be AEXXXXXXXX and End number AEXXXXXXXXXXX.
  • In order the Change the Prefix to None :
    • Go to Business Congifuration and then select the Activity Number Ranges for Employees and Service Agents.
    • In the Prefix, Choose None and save.
