Assign Number Ranges for Costing Documents

Each unit cost estimate must be uniquely identified in the system. This is made possible by the fact that each cost estimate has a costing document that is saved under a unique number.

In unit costing, numbers are requested for the following reference objects:

Standard settings

The standard system contains two number range groups:

You do not usually have to create new groups. If for organizational reasons you cannot avoid creating new groups, note that new groups should be created for unit costing within the corresponding existing number range group.


To assign a costing variant to a number range group, proceed as follows:

1. Choose Maintain groups.
2. Enter one or more ranges for the number range group.
3. Choose Select elements and select one or more costing variants under the header "Not assigned".
4. Choose Select group and select the group to which the costing variant is to belong.
5. Assign the selected costing vriants to the number range group with Assign elements to group.
6. Save the assignment.

Further notes

If no explicit number range assignment was made in Customizing, the assignment is made automatically when unit costing is started. The costing variants not yet assigned are assigned to number range group 01 by default.


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.
