    Hi,

    Having the same no. range between two companies would make it difficult in identifying to which company code the document belongs. Also find out what is the client following now. I would recommended to go with different no. ranges.

      Hi,

      I do not see any substantial advantages of using a unique no range. However unique no. range is a better practice, easier to maintain and reduces confusion with the documents. Irrespective of whether it is a customer or any other document I personally would recommend to go with a unique no. range. As I told you earlier if the client, currently has the same number series for customers of both the companies and insist to follow the same then go with it.

      Regards

    There is no advantage too me.

    You cannot identify 'at a glance' if the document X belongs to company A or B, and this could be misleading during some analysis.

    The disadvantage is that you need a userexit to separate the number ranges based on the sales organization.

    Of course all fiscal number ranges (invoices) MUST be separate.
