Given below is the requirement for new template for a new material type. Today we have material types MATLTYPE1 & MATLTYPE2 working fine in our system with the below settings
MATLTYPE1 - External Number Assignment Without Validation is “Ticked” in Tcode: OMS2 and number range is not assigned in Tcode: MMNR. Sample material number format is “ANNNNNN.NNNNN” (or) “NNN.NNN.NNNNN” (or) “ANNNNNNNNN”. (A – Alphabetic, N – Numeric).
MATLTYPE2 – Ext.Number Assignment Without Validation is “UnTicked” in tcode: OMS2 and number range is assigned in Tcode: MMNR. From Number 000000000000000000 to number ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ and External Indicator is “ticked”. Sample material number format is “NNN”
Now we got a request for new material type with material number masking. The materials in this new material type should be shown in the format of “NNNNNN-NNNN-NNN”. For example material entered as 1234 should be displayed and stored as 000000-0001-234. And material entered as 12345678 should be displayed as 000001-2345-678.
Please provide your recommendation on how to fulfill this request without any impact on the existing material types MATLTYPE1 & MATLTYPE2
