Issue with Material master Number assignment

Material Types were grouped and the two Number ranges were assigned for the same. one as numerical number range as Internal assignment and the Alpha numerical as the External number range but on creating the Material through MM01 (without entering the material number) the External number range is fetched instead of Internal number range.

Please advice.

SAP is not able to pull itself a number from external number range.

You either setup what you thought to be external as an internal number range or you have an exit active that automatically pullls the number from the external range

Thanks for your update Jurgen!

The real Issue is out of the 10 Material types assigned to that group for the 9 Material types external number range is fetched and for one material type the internal numbers is assigned correctly while creating the material.


this speaks even more for my theory.
