Alpha numaric Internal Number ranges for Customer.

Hi All,

Our requirement is like, need to maintain alpha numeric number ranges for customers and that should be internal. Is there any possibility for this requirement?

Example: Our client having two type customers i.e., Parent and Child customers. Parent customeru2019s number start like P000000001 and Child customers numbers starts like C000000001. We have to map similar kind of number ranges (internal) system in SAP.

Is the any possibility to maintain this kind of number ranges in SAP.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Alphanumeric number range can be defined in the Transaction code XDN1 or OVZC,

    after defining the number range with specific key , assign this to the account group in OBAS. as per ur parent and child account groups.

    The alphanumeric number range cant be assigned internally, this is not supported by the Standard SAP.

    Just you can define the number range as External numer range by checking the external field in the XDN1 transaction code.

    Hope it is clear,

    regards,

    Dear Sridhar,

    I dont think its possible to assign Internal number ranges which are Alphanumeric in SAP. The reason behind this is if you will assign C0000001 to one customer then what will be the next number??? SAP also calculates based on bits and ASCII, so it wont determine what is C. hence the problem.

    YOu can have external number range in sales order , but then again in billing external number range is not advisable. For this you have to check USEREXIT_NUMBER_RANGE (Module pool SAPLV60A, program RV60AFZZ) .

    Thanks,
