3461991 - Wrong subitem numbering on sales order


You have defined a subitem increment number of 10 on the master data, but when you have an order created with several items, you see an increment of 1 instead of 10. For example:

You have an order with items 10, 20 and 30. You do an ATP check on item 10 and it will have substitutions and a subitem will be created, so you expect item 20 to be created as subitem, but item 11 is created instead.
