In this step you define a number range to be used for actual
You can specify whether the numbers in the range should be assigned
internally or externally. If you choose "internal", the R/3 System
assigns numbers automatically.
Number ranges are valid for a specific concern. You can assign
one or more
record types to each number range.
You must have system authorization for number range
Your operating concern must be defined completely.
The record types must be maintained.
1. Decide which record types you want
to use in this operating concern.
2. If necessary, define new number
range groups to meet your requirements (function "Maintain group",
then function "Insert group").
3. Enter document number ranges in
the number range groups. When doing so, do not forget to take
existing document number ranges into account.
Note that automatic (internal) number
assignment is mandatory for data which is transferred to CO-PA from
other R/3 application components (such as direct postings from FI,
cost assessment from CO-CCA, or order/project settlement from
CO-OPA and PS).
4. Assign the record types to the
number range groups.
You transport number range objects as follows:
In the initial screen, choose "Interval - Transport".
Note that all intervals for the selected number range object are
deleted in the target system first. After the import, only the
intervals you export are present. The number statuses are imported
with their values at the time of export.
Dependent tables are not transported or converted.
