    For Customer from Legacy system, have a separate Account Group with Extermal Number Range, which can continue in new system also. All New Customer Master Record can be configured to have internal number range.

    Account Group

    Maintain Number Range for Account Group

    Use

    The purpose of this activity is to control number range of Account Group.

    Procedure

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG --> Financial Accounting (New)  Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable  Customer Accounts  Master Data  Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data  Create Number Ranges for Customer Accounts  Select the Icon to maintain Number Range

    Transaction Code SPRO

    Data to be maintained:

    No | From | To | Current No | Ext (Tick in Check Box)

    01 | 0000000001 | 0000099999 | 0 | No

    02 | 0000100000 | 0000299999 | 0 | No

    XX | A | ZZZZZZZZZZ | Yes

    Assign Number Range to Account Group

    Use

    The purpose of this activity is to maintain number range of Account Group.

    Procedure

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG --> Financial Accounting (New)  Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable  Customer Accounts  Master Data  Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data  Assign Number Ranges to Customer Account Groups

    Transaction Code SPRO

    Data to be maintained:

    Group | Name | Number Range

    0001 | Sold-to party | XX

    0002 | Goods recipient | XX

    0003 | Payer | XX

    0004 | Bill-to party | XX

    Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)

    Use

    In this step, you determine the account group of the customer.

    Procedure

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG --> Financial Accounting (New)  Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable  Customer Accounts  Master Data  Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data  Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)

    Transaction Code SPRO

    The groups indicated below are a few examples. There are many groups in Standard SAP & if we require additional Group, it can be copied from appropriate group & maintained.

    Group | Name

    0001 | Sold-to party

    0002 | Goods recipient

    0003 | Payer

    0004 | Bill-to party

    0005 | Prospective customer

    0006 | Competitor

    Select Sold-to-party  go to Details  Double Click on General data / Company code data / Sales data. It will take to next screen which details Tab Pages of General data / Company code data / Sales data. Double Click on Tab Page for example: Address, Control, Marketing & so on. Here you can maintain whether the field is to be Suppress, Req. Entry, Opt. entry or Display

    Regards,

    Hi,

    You can very well maintain the legacy number ranges in the search term of the customer master general data.This we have done it very successfully in our data migration plan for our rollout project.It is prefered to maintain in search term2 the old legacy numbers.
