    Yes. Very much possible. The same customer code can be extended accross company code also.

    It is illustrated with configuration methodlogy fot Account Group of Customer, as under:

    <b>2 Process & Configuration</b>

    <b>2.1 Customer Master</b>

    <b>2.1.1 Account Group</b>

    <b>2.1.1.1 Maintain Number Range for Account Group</b>

    <i>Use</i>

    The purpose of this activity is to control number range of Account Group.

    <i>Procedure</i>

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG --> Financial Accounting (New) --> Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable --> Customer Accounts --> Master Data --> Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data --> Create Number Ranges for Customer Accounts --> Select the Icon to maintain Number Range

    <i>Transaction Code</i>: SPRO

    Data to be maintained:

    No | From | To | Current No | Ext (Tick in Check Box)

    01 | 0000000001 | 0000099999 | 0 | No

    02 | 0000100000 | 0000299999 | 0 | No

    XX | A | ZZZZZZZZZZ | Yes

    <b>2.1.1.2 Assign Number Range to Account Group</b>

    <i>Use</i>

    The purpose of this activity is to maintain number range of Account Group.

    <i>Procedure</i>

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG > Financial Accounting (New) > Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable > Customer Accounts > Master Data > Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data > Assign Number Ranges to Customer Account Groups

    <i>Transaction Code</i> : SPRO

    Data to be maintained:

    Group | Name | Number Range

    0001 | Sold-to party | XX

    0002 | Goods recipient | XX

    0003 | Payer | XX

    0004 | Bill-to party | XX

    <b>2.1.1.3 Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)</b>

    <i>Use</i>

    In this step, you determine the account group of the customer.

    <i>Procedure</i>

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG > Financial Accounting (New) > Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable > Customer Accounts > Master Data > Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data > Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)

    <i>Transaction Code</i> : SPRO

    The groups indicated below are a few examples. There are many groups in Standard SAP & if we require additional Group, it can be copied from appropriate group & maintained.

    Group | Name

    0001 | Sold-to party

    0002 | Goods recipient

    0003 | Payer

    0004 | Bill-to party

    0005 | Prospective customer

    0006 | Competitor

    Select Sold-to-party > go to Details > Double Click on General data / Company code data / Sales data. It will take to next screen which details Tab Pages of General data / Company code data / Sales data. Double Click on Tab Page for example: Address, Control, Marketing & so on. Here you can maintain whether the field is to be Suppress, Req. Entry, Opt. entry or Display

    Hi,

    U have to select Ext no range for the Vendor/Customer account group so that u can create alpha numeric no range.

    Number range is assigned to the Account group - so I diff comapny codes use same account group for creation of master data the same alpha numeric number range will be used.

    If u have one external no range assigned to an account group - the same number (A123) can be extended to different comapny codes but the general data will remain same at client level

    Regards,

    Durga

    Yes it is possible. Go for external number range.

    In SAP, a number range is assigned to a particular master record or transactions in the system. In SAP you can assign an internal or external number range to a set of master documents. With internal number ranges, SAP automatically assigns numbers serially to documents. On the other hand, with external number ranges, a number has to be given by the user before saving the document. As a control requirement, I normally prefer internal number ranges.

    One important thing to note is that, a number range may have multiple intervals. For example, the number range (00001 to 99999) may have intervals (00001 to 9999) and (10000 to 99999). Each interval may be assigned to an individual object. Each object is allowed only one internal number range interval and one external number range interval.

    Financial Accounting -> Financial Accounting Global Settings -> Document -> Document Number Ranges
