Creation of Material with 10 digit EAN (R/3)

Hello fellows,

I want to create a Material with a 10-digit EAN while keeping the check-digit algorithm (=1). For that purpose I created a new EAN Category with the following data:

- External Interval - 1000000 to 999999999

- Check-digit algorithm = 1.

When I insert the 10-digit EAN and choose the new EAN category it shows the following error: "WE218 : The EAN has an incorrect check digit".

Why does this happen? I've read the other threads and from that what I understood is that I should maintain an external number interval for a 9 digit interval, if I wish to insert a 10 digit EAN.

Can you please advise me? Thanks.

    Did you define the EAN length? It should be 10. Stupid question - is you check digit correct? Do you have leading 0s?

      Sorry for not have answered your comment at the time. It was my first time using this platform, anyway thank you for your comment.

      Can't actually remember exactly how we solved that problem out, but I know we did :)
