During sales Order entry - in Doc no field duplicate check req, with customer name filter.
Sales Order Document is being used by users to capture various information which may or may not be unique. For example there is manual order book to capture the Order Booking and eventually that is entered into system. Thus ideally user should enter number as manual book number + entry number to make it unique. Thus we cannot restrict it overall.
