Material Master Number range

Hi,

I have assigned a number range 100000000- 109999999 for raw material type ROH & Group( Raw material).

When i am creating the material its taking number 10000000 but the current number is changing to 100000009. I have to go & change current number to upload through LSMW.

Can anyone let me know what can be the possible reason for the current number.

Thanks

John

    Hi john

    all this happens just because of buffering u have set in SNRO

    Check SAP notes Note 62077 - Info: Internal number assignment is not continuous

    for more info

    Hi,

    If i give 0 in main memory buffering than when i am entering MM01 , selecting view but not creating the material,than also the current number is changing. This time it changed to 100000002. The current number should have been 0 as i have not created the material.

      hello

      what SAP does is that when u create material with internal number range it assigns the number before saving the material

      so the counter goes +1 even though u have not created the material

      Say u have curent number 123456

      u start creating material put the first screen material type indistrial and click enter

      on clicking enter system assign next numbe 123457

      and the counter for current number change s frm 123456 to 123457

      u dont save the material and comes out

      when u go to creat next material then ut will take 123458 and it will miss 123457 completly

      hope now its clear

      reward if useful

    Dear John

    This is due to the buffereing that is set for the object :MATERIALNR.

    use t.code :SNRO and give the object :MATERIALNR

    there you will see that

    No. of numbers in buffer- 10 ( This number determines how many numbers are reserved in the application server buffer for the intervals.)

    If you make this number as 0 and then try to create the material master then i think you will not face problem.

    Hope this is clear to you.

    Regards

    sunny

    Hi umakant,

    I am clear with what you are telling. But i want to know is there any way to have the material number created sequentially without skipping the inbetween number, if any material has not been created even after entering mm01 & selecting a view.

    Regards

    John

      No i dont think there is any way to avoide this

      SAP system is designed in such a way that it will assign a number first and then at the time of saving it will confirm that number.

      Reward if inforation usefull
