    Based on standard, it is not possible to have automatic alphanumeric number range, but if you want, you can use an number range determination exit to accommodate your requirement.

    You can set a number range for example from 00079000001 - 0007999999

    and in the exit, replace the leading zeros if KLR then update the status of number range.

    You need to work with your ABAPer for this, and it's still possible.

    Try this user exit USEREXIT_NUMBER_RANGE (Module pool SAPLV60A, program RV60AFZZ

    Hope this can assist you.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Hello,

      what you need is not possible just be userexit.

      An alphanumeric number range can be only external.

      By USEREXIT_NUMBER_RANGE you can change the number range to be used. But it must be internal. It is not possible to set external number range in billing, neither by userexit.

      After the execution of userexit the system calls the function NUMBER_GET_NEXT to determine the NUMERIC number of the INTERNAL number range.

      Sorry for the negative answer.

      Best regards,
