ECC 6.0 :Error with AFAB ( Number Range Assginment)

Dear All,

Please advise

We have upgrading from 4.7 to ECC 6.0

While running DEP AFAB, I get the following Error resulting

Create document number range 03 using internal number assignment

Message no. AA776


Processing terminated because the document number range 03 for year 2006 was set up with external number assignment.

System Response

For periodic posting of depreciation, you have to create a document number range with internal number assignment, since the document numbers are assigned from Financial Accounting.


Change the number assignment for the number range 03 from external to internal in Customizing for Asset Accounting. See SAP Note 890976 for more information.

Here for DEP posting we have maitianed number range as Externally and we are able to run in PRD but now after upgrade in DEV, it is giving the above Error.

    Upto version 4.7, you need to have the number range marked as 'external'.

    In ECC 6.0, you need to have the version as 'internal'. You can change the number range from 'external' to 'internal' only when you change the status (current number) to zero. If it is year specific number range, any significant impact may not be there. Nevertheless, please follow the note 890976.

    After going through the error , i understood that, from external number range assignment you need to convert to internal number range. Please do the same in T.Code : FBN1 .

    Please also check, whethter in document type "AF" the batch input check box is checked or not.

    Hope this solves the problem.

    If helpful please assign points as way of thanks.

      Dear Lakshimi,

      The Tick is marked, So its understood that document type AF is having the External Number range. I have two Questions:

      Are DEP Posting will have Internal Number Range?

      wht would be impact if now i change the EXtrenal number range indicator to Internal?

      please suggest.
