MDG - Issue generating same Vendor number as BP number

We are trying to configure CVI such that the Vendor number is generated same as the BP number. We ran into an issue where once the CR is approved, a new BP number is generated, but the Vendor number gets assigned as the temporary BP number (with the prefix $). Has anyone else come across this situation? Following are the details of the configuration we made -

1) Created same number ranges for both BP (Internal number assignment) and the Vendor account group (External number assignment)

2) Set BP Role Category for Direction BP to Vendor

3) Defined 'Same' number assignment for BP Grouping and vendor account group.

4) As shown in the screenshot below, the BP number is generated correctly as 40001, however the vendor number is not the same ($126 - which was temporary BP number until CR was approved)

in your scenario setting the "flexible grouping" checkbox in CVI customizing makes no sense. Kindly remove this checkbox.

Thanks Michael, I took off the "flexible grouping" checkbox and the BP and vendor numbers are generated as same.
