Difference in Number range from MDGS & ECC


Presently we are implementing MDGs. Once change request is approved and vendor is created there is difference in Number range between MDGS (stored in Table: BUTOOO) and ECC (Table: LFA1). Like to understand where and how to assign the same number range equal to ECC number range.

    Hi Shyam,

    as you have already noticed, MDG-S uses two different objects for storing its data: the business partner in BUT000 and the vendor in LFA1. Both have independent number ranges: the one of the BP is defined by the BP Grouping; the one of the Vendor is defined by the Vendor Account Group. The link between both has to be configurred in the Customer/Vendor Integration (CVI). In CVI you have to define which BP Grouping corresponds to which Vendor Account Group. The allows some possibilities for numbering. The best ones to ensure same numbers are:

    - BP Internal + Vendor External + Same Number Flag

    - BP External + Vendor External + Same Number Flag

    Setting both numbering to internal does not really help since you cannot be sure that allways the same internal number will be derived by the system.

    Please check the MDG-S config guide for more details.

    Best regards

      Hi Michael

      I already set external number range for Vendor and Business Partner with same number in CVI.

      But Vendor UI field is still non editable in UI.

      Is there any specific requirement for external number for Vendor in Vendor Like UI?

    Hi Shyam,

    If you leave the temporary ID as it is, which is generated during the creation of CR,the entity created should inherit the same ID from your ECC system once it is activated.

    [ Note: You can maintain ECC number range for vendor in XKN1 tcode.]
