External Number Range to Material Master

Issue one

- I have created a new material type and only internal number range is assigned to it. But when I select the "External no. assignment w/o check" option system takes the external number also. where did it get the number from when I have not assigned any external number range to it.

Issue two

- I want to assign external number range to a material type that should take numeric numbers while creating material master records.

Can anyone help with this?

    I) You can define the Material Master Number Range in transaction MMNR.

    Click the button Groups to Maintain the Material Type Grouping.

    Below are those material type that have no number range groups.

    To assign a group, in the not assigned group, select the Material Type you want to group.

    Then tick the Group you want to assign and click the menu path Edit -> Assign Element Group.

    From the same screen, if you want a new number range intervals, click Group -> Insert Group.

    II) If you decided to used an external number range, goto transaction OMS2 and

    tick the field External no. assignment w/o check.

    then you enter your interval number range.

    Next Screen

    define

    From Number ___A__ and TO Number ZZZZZZZZZZZu2026u2026..(select ext check box)

    and

    double click u201Ccustomized material type"

    and select check box of your "Number Range Group text " for external ZZ and click Element/Group in the Application Bar and Save.
