    Hi,

    You can increase the limit from 999999 to few more 9's.

    But take care that no two objects should include any common number in their respective range.

    Hi MAQ,

    You can do as Karna has suggested ELSE Create a New Number range in VN01 and assign the same in VOV8.

    Reward if it helps

      Hi ,

      there is one more approach by which we can solve this issue ..

      goto VN01

      click the interval button ( NOT THE ABOVE ONE .. CLICK THE BELOW ONE ...)

      he u will be able to change the number range

      normally 01 --- is for 1 to 199999

      02 -- is for 5000000 to 5999999

      (IN STANDARD SAP)

      here u can see the gap between 01 and 02

      but for u it might be changed ....

      here in 01 change the number range from the number sales order number which u have(976832.. which is ur current number that u will see to the rightmost) and the end number to 4999999 (see the next line and reduce one number to and use it) .... i mean the next last digit to the next series of 02...

      let me know if its not clear to u...

      reward points if useful

      thanks

    System will not allow overlaping of number range. As the number range is nearing to end of redefined, followinwing are the options:

    Option 1:

    Set number range for number range object 01 is 01 to 999999 . Check if the number range starting from 1000000 is free or already being used. If it is free & that number range is not being used else where, you can reduce the number range in it say number range object 02 is assigned number range from 1000000 to 1999999, you amend the number range to 1500000 to 1999999 & extend the number range fornumber range object 01 as 01 to 1499999.

    Option 2:

    If the following number range is in use, go to VOV8 --> select the Sales Document Type SO --> change number range object say 01 to say A1 & transport the same from Development to Test (QA) & then to Production Server. In the next step step maintain new number range (not overlaping) to say A1, number range being 10000000 to 19999999. The imapct of transporting the reauest of VOV8 transaction will be that you will have to maintain the new number range immediately & from very next Sales order, the new number range will be active.

    Hope this is useful input for you.
