Customer / Vendor Accounts Groups Link to Business Partner Groups (1511)


Hi experts,

within S4/HANA 1511 all "old" customer and vendor transactions are replaced by the transaction "BP".

The number range that is used for creating a business partner is maintained within the Business Partner customizing tree. Nevertheless, if you create a business partner within the business partner role "FI Customer" the system also creates a new Customer using the number range "01" maintained within the "Accounts Receivable / Accounts Payble" custmomizing tree (Financial Accounting (New)).

The system always uses the number range "01" for creating a new customer in the FI-number-range. If you delete the number range "01" within FI, the system breaks down if you try to create a new customer afterwards.

Is the connection between the Business Partner (role "FI Customer") and the FI-Customer-number-range hard coded or is it possible to use different FI-Customer-number-ranges for creating Business Partner (role FI-Customer)?

Thanks a lot!
