    Hello Anwar,

    first of all I would like to warn you about the way you customized your number ranges; in my opinion it can lead to heavy inconsistencies. I have explained this in detail in another thread, please take a look at it (important is my longest post within this thread): http://scn.sap.com/message/13669308

    Concerning your problem, I think Note 1545686 is irrelevant. It looks to me like there is a problem with the settings of authorization object P_TRAVL (obviously it's a permission problem). Please take a look in the respective roles SAP_FI_TV_TRAVELER and SAP_FI_TV_WEB_TRAVELER Object P_TRAVL or in case you use custom roles, take a look at them instead. I assume you have altered the role/object and made a restriction for BUKRS, Personell Area or the like.

    Cheers, Lukas

    • Dear Anwar,

      This simply means that you have defined in customizing that you are using an internal and also an external number range, however you obviously have not created an external number range (or didn't assign it). To rectify the error you'll have to create an external number range and assign it accordingly.

      However, to me, the actual question is, why would you use external number intervals? SAP recommends to only use internal ones and I know of no use cases where an additional external number range makes sense (unless you have some kind of third party trave management system you want to "intermediately integrate" into SAP Travel Management, but I wager this is not the case).

      Cheers, Lukas
