    You have to choose either internal or External number Range for your material type..

    You can not use Both at the same time..

    Hi,

    Yes you can,

    You have just to define two different intervals without overlaps

    in one interval you set the indicator extranl in Tcode MMNR

    For more information about the number range assignement/ Material Master

    you check in the page 22 of the document :

    http://help.sap.com/printdocu/core/Print46c/en/data/pdf/LOMDMM/LOMDMM.pdf :

    Your system administrator defines the required type of number assignment in Customizing for the

    Material Master in Define Number Ranges [Ext.]. After defining a number range, he or she can

    flag it, if external number assignment is required, as an external number range. Your system

    administrator then assigns it to one or more material types. As a result, when creating a material

    master record, the type of number assignment allowed depends on the material type chosen. *In*

    the standard R/3 System, one external number range and one internal number range can be

    defined for each material type or group of material types.

    Hi,

    Yes, it is feasible through configuration whereby you should define two different number range and make necessary activation if a certain number range is for external assignment.

    Cheers,
