Supplier Invoice Number validation

Hi Experts,

We are in the middle of implementation Ariba Commerce Automation.

We have integration Ariba with ERP System ECC6 EHP7

We need some guidance regarding invoice number validation.

As currently, in Ariba, as supplier i can enter anything on the invoice number when create the Invoice.

But in SAP ERP, we have limitation for the length of invoice number that will be posted as reference.

Is there such feature for this? open for input/suggestion.

Thank you in advance,
