Material Number in S4/HANA 1610

Hi Expert,

Currently I'm on SAP S/4HANA 1610 on premise. In table MARA, MATNR data element is now extended to 40 chars long. However, I can't find any config which to set the number of characters for the material number. My current data output still 18 chars long. In material master range maintenance, it only mange support until 18 characters long but not 40 chars.

My question is is there any SAP Note that I need to patch on or do I miss out any config?

Regards,

-Ben-

    The number range interval provided by SAP for S4 Hana is still limited to 18 characters, even using the 40 character extension from OMSL for external numbers. SAP just adds the additional zero's to the defined 18 character numbering interval to allow you up to 40 characters.

    2453997 - S4/HANA: BMG142 The numeric material number is longer than 18 characters

    • SAP standard behavior as it is documented in the note2267140and also in note2215424, pure numerical material number can only be 18 characters long.
    • So it is SAP standard behavior that MMNR cannot set number range object to 40 characters long , there is no plan for change.

    in case someone still have the same concens..
