szamla number in smartforms

we must send invoices to eastern countries. For some of them it is necessary to create a number (szamla) which must be continuously and which is not the invoice number itself.

Now we are looking for a solution to use this kinds of numbers.

Are there any solutions?

Thanks

    Hi,

    Then you need to create a number range accordingly.

    hi Jörn-Peter,

    welcome to SDN 😊

    I think you just havbe to create a new number range in SNUM and you can use that in a user exit.

    hope this helps

    PS.: "számla" means invoice (other meaning is account), number is "szàm"

    Hi!

    You can create custom number ranges with SNRO transaction.

    If you need continous numbering, then don't forget to turn off the number buffering!

    You can retrieve the next number using the NUMBER_GET_NEXT function module.

    Regards

    Thanks for the tip with the new number ranges.

    But there are still some problems left, how to handle a cancellation of an invoice, the spezial number must be given free again, to use it for the next invoice.

    Maybe there is a soliution with a free standard SAP Field in the order or something like this.

    THANKs.

    • in this case, probably would be better to keep these numbers in an internal table, so you can easily keep track if there is a hole (to reuse the number). But I really don't understand what sense does it make to reuse cancelled numbers. It is completely against the rules of accounting (and common sense as well). I would just mark the cancelled number as cancelled, and not use it again (to avoid any possible confusion).
