Internal Order Creation


We are using individual internal order types for each company code and assigned number range of A-ZZZZZZZZZZ for each order type, the problem is in one controlling area /company code we have created a internal order FIXEDASSET and at time of creating the same internal order for the other comp code/contr area, sys giving message order FIXEDASSET already exists, how it was possible?

1)we cannot create the same internal order number across all the company codes?

2)why we need to maintain external number assignment for object 04 in doc type AF? is there any special significance?

kindly give ur valuable suggestions ASAP

I will assign points to all who gives better

Thanks in advance

    for Internal orders, we create with respect to controlling area only, no matter how many company codes are there, i.e it is unique with respect to controlling area.

    hi Sunil,

    1.The internal order number ranges are assigned to the internal order types. This means several companies can share the same number range (because all in these companies you can create internal order the same type). Did you try to display this internal order (FIXEDASSET) in KO03?

    2. I think you mean depreciation documents here... There are technical reasons behind: the system is able to achieve this way, that the BI session can be reconstructed if it was lost or deleted by accident. Remember the depreciation run is done in two steps: 1. tcode AFAB for calculation and creating the BI session 2. Run the BI session.

    hope this helps
