    Hi Selvam,

    the number range is assigned by business partner grouping, as this is one of single mandatory attributes of business partner. You can have more roles per one business partner and you can add them later to an existing business partner.

    Check the documentation in IMG (SPRO->Cross application components->SAP Busines Partner->Business Partner->Basic Settings->Number ranges and groupings->Define groupings and Assign Number Ranges.

    You have to make sure in your process to choose proper grouping when creatin employee or sold-to-party.

      Hi Selvam,

      If you want to assign a specific number range for your employees, check the customizing via:
      SPRO --> Customer Relationship Management --> Master Data --> Business Partner --> Integration Business Partner-Employee --> Set Up Integration With HR

      In this setting, you can define the grouping you would like to use for your employees.

      Check entries:

      HRALX PBPON Value must be ON

      HRALX PNUMB I propose to use 3, but check help here what fits your situation

      HRALX PSUBG Enter the BP grouping you want to use that you reserved for your number range for the employees.
