Assignment requirement

Hi All,

Can we have an assignment to check what was the last assigned number.

Eg:

I have an account group 0001, for which i maintain a range say (from number - 100 to number - 500)

to begin with i have assigned 100 to a vendor using assignment, so when i create a new record can i check what my last assigned number was?

Rgds,

Sharma.

    Hello,

    Why do yo wanna, check the last number assigned, please explain your scenario.

    As explained by Neethu, in point 2

    if you have PI in the system landscape and are using workflows, just trigger a XML back to MDIS, with vendor number , you need not have change pointer activated.

      Thanks abhishek,

      I wanted to define different number ranges for different account groups or material types so i would go with qualified number range option which will generate the numbers upon syndication as per the assigned range .

    Hi Sharma,

    Assignment executes expression record wise not field wise.It will not be possible to find the last number assigned.

    I assume you want to assign vendor number as your source system uses internal number range.

    you can achieve this number assignment in 2 ways:

    1st Option

    Use Qualified Number range and set the number range in console for the account group for the remote system.

    But this will assign number only when record is syndicated from MDM.

    2nd Option:

    when record is created leave the vendor number field blank and syndicate it to source system ,then through change pointer send the vendor number and MDMID(or some unique field) and import it .

    I have experience and has worked on both the ways.

    Regards,
