    Hi,

    You can do it by having external number range and it can be set every year. This is very basic of SAP. I think you are from domain prespective asking this.

    The problem aspect associated with this you need to keep track for each and every doc , many times concurrent postings will hamper. this is best used when you want to have some ref no as input to this document automatically.

    thanks

    Hi

    I think you can do this by using a number range that is external only. You may also refer to your abaper also.

    Regards

    Hi,

    External intervals can only contain either letters or numbers, as sorting can differ between platforms (Code page):

    Allowed: 000001 to 999999

    AAAAAA to ZZZZZZ

    Not allowed: AAAAAA to 999999

    It may have maximum 10 digits or alphabatical keys

    Regards,

    Jigar
