Hi

Can we maintain number ranges for vendors, company-code wise. If yes, please let me know the T-code and the menu path.

Regards

Kavitha

    Hello,

    NO. You CANNOT create vendor number ranges per company code.

    Vendor number ranges cut across company codes.

    Note: Account Groups are created at Client Level. The same can be used by company code. You will assign the number ranges per Account Group. There is NO company code in picture directly.

    Hi,

    First create account group, number ranges and assign number ranges to your account group.

    path: SPRO-SAP IMG-Financial Accounting-Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable-Vendor Accounts-Master Data-Preparations for Creating Vendor Master Data-Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Vendors),Create Number Ranges for Vendor Accounts and Assign Number Ranges to Vendor Account Groups.

    Hope this is clear.

    Hi,

    Steps:

    1. Define Account Group for Vendors - T code: OBD3)

    Path: IMG/Financial Accounting/Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable/Vendor Accounts/Master Data/Preparations for Creating Vendor Master Data/Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Vendors)

    Here we have to define Account Group for Vendors (Eg. Local Vendors, One time Vendors, Foreign Venors etc.)

    2. Create Number Ranges for Vendor Accounts - TCode: XKN1

    Path: IMG/Financial Accounting/Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable/Vendor Accounts/Master Data/Preparations for Creating Vendor Master Data/Create Number Ranges for Vendor Accounts

    Here create your number ranges. We can create number ranges for vendor account groups seperately or we can maintain only one number ranges for all the vendor account groups.

    3. Assign Number Ranges to Vendor Account Groups - T Code: OBAS

    Path: IMG/Financial Accounting/Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable/Vendor Accounts/Master Data/Preparations for Creating Vendor Master Data/Assign Number Ranges to Vendor Account Groups

    Assign the number ranges to each of the vendor account groups which you have created in step 2. We can also assign separate number ranges for each of the vendor account groups.

    Hope this helps.

    No, we will unable to create Vendor Number range company code wise -

    we can only create vendor number ranges against Vendor account groups only - as per SAP Standard

    Path - SPRO - IMG - Financial Accounting (New) --Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable --Vendor Accounts --Master Data --Preparations for Creating Vendor Master Data -- Create Number Ranges for Vendor Accounts and -- Assign Number Ranges to Vendor Account Groups .,

    Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Vendors)
