How to achieve Matching numbers for Business Partners & Vendors in case of Internal Number range ?

Hello all,

Need your expert guidance for resolving business partner number range issue.

We are in the process of converting the ECC system of our client to S/4 HANA 1610.

During the preparation phase, when we configured business partner settings under Master Data Synchronization node in IMG, we get the below error message while activating the checkbox "Same Nos." for Business partner groups which have internal number range.

Number range for account group Z001 has not been defined externally

Message no. FLBP021

We don't face the issue when we try to do the same for BP groups which have external number range.

So, our question is: "Is it possible to setup the same number range for Business partners and vendors, when they are configured for internal number range? If yes, how to achieve that?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Regards

Prabhu

    same number range can be assigned but you need to tick external number range in where you define number range then reference number range number needs to be assigned to vendor account group.

    I hope it will work

    • Hi Rashid,

      I had the same issue and it did get solved by your answer. Thanks for that.

      But, I am not sure why it doesn't work with internal number range for vendor account group and why it requires it to be an external number range.

      Thanks for posting this question Prabhu.

    Hello Rashid,

    Thanks for your reply. Are you asking me to make the existing vendor number range as "External" and then assign the same to BP ? I tried to do the same but the number range settings are greyed out because they are already in use.
    Can you please confirm/clarify your point ? Also, what is the exact IMG path you want me to go and modify ?

    Regards

    Prabhu
