Maintain Number Ranges for Settlement Documents

Each settlement must be identified explicitly. To do so, the SAP System creates a settlement document each time an object is settled.

You use settlement documents for the transactions "Reversal of Settlements" and "Repeated Period-End Closing".

In this step you define the intervals, or number ranges, for settlement documents for one or more controlling areas.


You should define separate number range intervals for settlement documents for each controlling area. This improves performance if you want to settle objects in different controlling areas at the same time (for example, on the same day).


1. Create a number range with Group -> Maintain and Group -> Insert
2. Give your number range a description.
3. Specify one interval for the number range. If you use up this range, you can add more intervals.
4. Select one or more of the controlling areas listed in the block "Not assigned".
5. Place the cursor on the number range to which you want to assign the selected controlling areas.
6. Use Assign element group to assign the controlling area(s) to the appropriate number range and save your entries.

Further notes

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. Note that the appropriate application table is also transported for number range objects used for group maintenance.
