Define number range for billing document groups

In this menu option, you define the number intervals of the number ranges for groups of transactions and sales and distribution documents in collective processing.

When creating a group of transactions (for example billing documents), a unique number identifying the group is assigned. The number comes from the number range which the is provided for the respective group (for example, group of billing documents).

There are two types of number assignment:

The SAP System automatically assigns a sequential number from the defined number range.
You predefine a number from the external number range.


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.


To define a number range, you must create a new number interval. To do this, proceed as follows:
1. Specify an alphanumeric key which can have up to 2 characters.
2. Specify the limits of the number interval. The individual number intervals may not overlap. Thus, every number can only occur once.
3. Indicate the number range if it is provided for the external number assignment.
4. Afterwards specify the key of the number range for the respective groups (see section "Define Group of Deliveries", "Define Freight List", "Define groups of billing documents" , and "Define groups of invoice lists" .
