Error Message no. HU_VV0C007: Number assignment must be unique

Dear Experts,

When I tried to create a new packaging material type, met error as below. Error came from my Number Range assignment which I selected 'Any external number can be entered(no HU functionality)' , this is what I want that the external number of the HU can be modified freely not referring to an external interval, but it said that the HU unique is defined at client level, can anyone know how to get to the client level and modify this setting? I tried to searched in forum but got no hint.

--------error message -----

Number assignment must be unique - Random number assignment not possible

Message no. HU_VV0C007


It has been defined at client level that the external number assignment must be unique. Unique number assignment is ensured through the assignment of an SSCC18 code (serial shipping container code). At client level, number assignment is also unique because it is based on a number range interval.


Choose a different number assignment.

Kindly help, thank you!

    in IMG > Logistics - General > Handling Unit Management > External Identification > Set Unique Number Assignment for HU Identification

    it is defined that the HU number is unique at client level.

    So it is contradictory to assign a number range that has already in the description the information "no HU functionality"

    Thank you Jürgen!

    I see.

    Firstly, I unchecked the HU ID unique.

    Then changed in my packaging material type that the extenal No. can be entered under 'Define Number Assignment for Each Packaging Material Type'

    After that checked back HU ID Unique option.

    This achieved my expectation, the internal number range is unique and the external number range can be formatted by entering the expected value.
