Equipment Number range - 0AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ZZ0000000000000000

Hi,

Need urgent advice.

We are using Equipment range 0AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ZZ0000000000000000

Can someone please explain the above range and explain these sample equipment numbers with system response:

0A: Equipment number 0A not in external number interval

0B: Its accepted by the system

01A or 0A1 or 11 or 13 or 345 : Equipment number ### not in external number interval

0B1 or 11A: Its accepted by the system

0SSSSSSSSSSS1: Its accepted by the system

Z19999999999999999 or Z99999999999999999: Its accepted by the system

ZZ1: Equipment number ### not in external number interval

Keeping in mind the above examples, clarity is required?

Thanks

    Hi Faisal,

    It’s just SAP standard functionality.

    The above process on how the number range is compared and checked is written in the Function Module Equipment_number_check.Function CALL FUNCTION 'NUMBER_CHECK'. It’s very easy to understand. Please have a look in that or put a debugging point and compare the results.



    Consider your numer range as range1 0AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and range 2 ZZ0000000000000000

    1. Failure- 0A is less than range1. System checks 0A with 0AAAAA... which is less than range1

    2. Accepted- 0B is greater than range1(in fact B >A)

    3. Failure: 01A or 0A1 or 11 or 13 or 345 is less than range1

    4. Accepted: 0B1 or 11A is greater than range 1

    5. Accepted: 0SSSSSSSSSSS1 is greater than range1

    6. Accepted Z19999999999999999 or Z99999999999999999, this is greater than range1 and less than range2

    7. Failure: ZZ1 is greater than range2


    Thanks

    Sri
