External Number Range for Equipment


Hello All,

I have been trying to assign External Number range for Equipment. I created External Number range & assigned the Equipment category to that group. I have not ticked No Alphanumeric code is allowed in Equipment category configuration.

When I am trying with Equipment creation in IE01, I am getting error message as follows.

No external number range defined for equipment category

Message no. IS037


You have entered a number but an internal number assignment is set for the equipment category.

System Response

The system assigns a number itself.


You should not enter a number.

I have attached the screen shot of OIEN transaction & IE01 transaction.

I tried with different combination like 1000AA00 to 1000ZZ00, 1000AA00 to ZZZZZZZZ, etc.,

I am facing this problem with one of the Training Client.

In Unit Testing Client, 1000AZ00 to ZZZZZZZZ number range is working fine.

Please give some views on this.
