material number ranges


Hi EveryOne,

I understand that , based on the material type, we can assign number ranges for material master.

ie. for eg. for the raw materials it is external because they are less in number.

spare parts it is internal as they are in hundreds... etc.

I also understand that the material type is at cleint level, that is if we decide on attaributes ( here number ranges ) for a material type then it would hold good for both the company codes, if we have two company codes under one client.

Is there a way, we can prefix three charecters, in front of material number in order for it to identify, to which company code it belongs.

Is there a way we can prefix three charecters in front of material number for spare parts, which would identify it. like MOT for motor spare part.

I read in these forums, that a similar kind ca be taken care off by user exit. But i want to confirmt hat this can be taken care off.

Had any one successfully did this.
