We have been running the HR module for several years, using internal numbers. We have recently changed to a new system where it creates external personnel numbers and handles all the HR management outside of SAP. Unfortunately, our plant maintenance module relies on these numbers being present to allow for time tracking (non-payroll), work order assignment, etc. We have attempted to both disable the personnel number check in configuration, but this doesn't appear to actually work with PM. We have also tried to change the personnel number range in PE03 for the affected countries, also without luck. Here is what the changed table looks like:
The idea is to use range 02 for countries 10 and 32, and range 01 for everthing else, but the system still insists on number range 01 when using PA40. Is there something wrong with the code, or am I trying to do something impossible?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might have.
