In this topic, we described about the Maintain Number Ranges for controlling documents process along with technical information.
Numbers that refer to business objects of the same type are assigned in Area. One or more number range intervals are specified for each number range in addition to the type of number assignment.
There are two types of number assignment -
- Internal: The SAP system assigns a sequential number that lies within the corresponding number range interval when saving a data record.
- External: Either the user or an external system assigns a number when saving the record.
The number must lie within the corresponding number range interval. The system generates a document number for each business transaction.
Business transactions are classified according to CO transactions. Each business transaction must assign to a number range interval and it is also possible to define multiple business transactions in one number range interval. The Controlling component provides many transactions for each controlling area.
