MMNR: Error in creating group with external number range

Hi,

I am trying on an ECC 6.0 EHP6 system to define the number ranges for each material type via transaction code MMNR (SPRO path: IMG → Logistics - General → Material Master → Basic Settings → Material Types → Define Number Ranges for Each Material Type).

The issue faced is that although groups with internal number ranges are properly created, those that need to be assigned to external number ranges are not created! In addition, even though the group in this scenario (external numbering) is not created, I can normally see the number range in the list.

I've also tried to run report “RSSNR0T1” (object “MATERIALNR”), in SE38, for consistency check and repair of number range intervals. I resolved the inconsistencies, but the problem is still apparent.

Unfortunately, I didn't find any related SAP notes, so any help would be highly appreciated!

    Hi Athanasios,

    Implement these 2 notes:1765341 and 1774625 .

    For me now the problem is solved (my problem was for internal number range) but I hope that will solve also your problem.

    Victor,

    Hi Athanasios,

    Can you add a screen shot of the error message and the error message number, the MNNR screen of your setup, and MM01 screen of the Material number you are creating.

    Thx

    MJ

    to assign to external number range:

    click on pensil (groups tab)> again click in pencil tab>click on + symbol> and add here

    number range from<--->to then save it.

    again open> maintain number range groups>then fist put cursor on group name>then F2>

    then click on checkbox in which you want to assign>finally click on element/groups.

    and save it. Now check your number range assigned as per your group.

    First of all I would like to thank you both for your instant replies!

    I apologize for my delayed answer, but I didn't have access to the community network the previous days. In addition, I will have access to the client's system from the beginning of next week in order to test any proposed solutions.

    However, I would like to inform you that I have created number ranges for material types several times in the past, so I know the procedure that needs to be followed.

    In case it wasn't clear at my initial message, I do not get any error messages upon the creation of the number range. The issue occurs when I create a new group and assign to it an external number range. At this scenario, the group is not created (it cannot be seen), while the number range is normally displayed in the list with the number ranges!

    I suppose that the only supplementary thing I can provide, is a video of the procedure that is followed, showing that groups with internal number ranges are created as expected, in contrast to groups with external number ranges that are not created.

    • Hi,

      As I understand you are able to maintain the internal number range of material type but not able to set External numbering for material type/material types.

      First find out "Number range group text" for External number range!

      Delete numbers from "Number range group text" for external numbering which you have now in the system and save.

      Now set new number range for external numbering with t.code:MMNR

      In the Menu -- > Click Group --- > maintain----> again click Group --->insert

      Next Screen---define

      Number range group text {ZE }

      From Number ----A-------and TO Number--ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ-----

      ( here enter your numbering as External)

      AND

      now double click "your favorable material type " and select check box of your "Number Range Group text ZE"and click Element/Group in the Application Bar ( you can see your your favorable material type is assigned to Number Range Group text ZE) and Save.
