For example U3 is number ranges object type. Can this be assigned to two different billing types in VOV8?

Hi,

You can do that, you can assign as many document types you want.

I wonder what is the process ? why you want to assign same number range for multiple documents ?

There are several threads available in SCN on same issue. Please search.

Thanks,

SS

My question is If same number ranges are assigned to different document types for example ZNOS and ZMOS are billing types. There will be sequence missing in the invoice numbers right? like ZNOS invoice is created with 1001 and if ZMOS is created immediately after ZNOS invoice than will it will take 1002. And again if i create ZNOS for the next invoice it will take 1003. Is my understanding correct?

Hi,

Yes , you are right.

You will miss the sequence. You never know looking at the document number what that document is I.E invoice, credit memo, debit memo..Etc if you have same number range.That is the reason we maintain different number ranges for documents to avoid complications.There are plently of threads avilable in SDN. Please go through.

Thanks,

SS

Do we have any tcode to check at object level(which billing type assigned)? Or we have check it manually by going through VOV8?

You are asking Billing type and quoting VOV8-Pl check..

Please check at yourself and create some testing docs-You will get more clarity..

Normally all sales related document Numbers-System will call RV_BELEG as a number range object and this is inherited in the standard coding..for better clarity check table TNRO and NRIV tables..

Hi Rajesh,

1. You can assign same number range to different billing types but not recommend you to do this. This is not the best practice

2. To avoid the skip number range, you can set the number range buffer to zero.

3. You can check table TVFK (T-code: VOFA) for number range that assigned to Billing type and table TVAK (T-code: VOV8) for number range that assigned to Sales Order Type.

Thanks.
