Getting error message Number "000-278-WLG_HOS" not defined for material type MATERIAL

Dear Community,

I am getting an error message "Number "000-278-WLG_HOS" not defined for material type MATERIAL" while creating a material master via MM01. I observe when I replace "0" before "-" via 1 or any number it allows to create.

    Have a look at OSS note 2486949

    The template how a material number has to be in your system is defined in customizing transaction OMSL

    What is the message number that you get, the text is the same for 4 different messages, double click the message to get to its long text, there you can find the message number

    M3318 Number & not defined for material type &

    MDG_BS_MAT_API012 Number & not defined for material type &

    PVJ369 Number & not defined for material type &

    VJ369 Number & not defined for material type &

    • I share your opinion. You should report it to SAP. However, if SAP closes this gap then your are still not any further. You have to create 2 number ranges like shown in F1 field help and in OSS note 2486949 which was already suggested by Lakshmipathi
