ARTMAS numbering of materials


Hello everyone,

It is possible to use the internal range number for material creation when uploading data throught ARTMAS idoc?

I'm using templates where the old material number from old legacy system is used as MATNR number in segment structures of idoc, but i'm expecting for SAP to assign a new material number according to range number defined for respective material group. Instead of a new material number, the old material number remains, even when configuration on range number has unchecked the external number assignment.

Of course, if I use the MATNR as initial value, the idoc raises an error. And if I use the option CK_NO_RNGE from MATHEAD segment, the old material number remains as it complies with the range number defined for that material group.

Please let me know your suggestions.

Thanks in advance.
