Define number assignment

In this step, you define the number ranges for the assignment of appropriation request numbers. You can roughly classify your appropriation requests using the number ranges.

Number assignment can be controlled by the appropriation request type. By assigning a number range group to the appropriation request type, you specify that the number assignment for this appropriation request type comes from the number range in this number range group.

Standard settings

SAP provides standard number ranges.


In order to keep administration needed for the number assignment to a minimum, you should use number ranges with internal assignment.


1. First, determine how many separate number ranges you need for your appropriation requests.
Enter the number intervals for the number ranges. The system creates a number range group for each defined number range.
2. Assign your appropriation request types to the the defined number range groups.

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.
