Hi Friends,

Path-SAP Customizing Implementation GuideCross-Application ComponentsSAP Business Partner-Business PartnerBasic SettingsNumber Ranges and Groupings, In that

Define No Range

NR Object – Business partner

No     From No     To No     Current No     External/Internal

Z1     M000000     M999999          Tick External

Define Groupings and Assign Number Ranges

For Group - GP01 Maintain No Range Z1 and Mark to External No.

When Am Creating Business Partner, T-Code BP, by selecting Group GP01

it show allow me only for 7 digit length ( 1Char and 6 Digit) i.e between M000000 to M999999

But System taking 10 digits also like M12345678.

How to restrict the length of No range?

Is there any setting at Config to restrict the length of External no. range?

HI,

The number for BP is always 10 digit by default. So if you want a 7 digit number then define the number range as 000M000000 to 000M999999. This will always create only a 7 digit number for a BP with grouping GP01. Also in the database if the BP number is M123456 it will be stored as 000M123456.

Hi PP,

Thanks for ur replay. But I have tried this but in this case in database it store as 000M123456 and not a M123456, If it is only number then OK but it is (1Charact and 6 digits) so not working..

Anay other setting to restrict no range length Pls....

Thnx,

Anand

Hi Anand,

I didn't get your point. The BP number now is of 7 digit including 1 character. That is what you want right?

Please explain.
