<b>Number Ranges</b>

In SAP, a number range is assigned to a particular master record or transactions in the system. In SAP you can assign an internal or external number range to a set of master documents. With internal number ranges, SAP automatically assigns numbers serially to documents. On the other hand, with external number ranges, a number has to be given by the user before saving the document. As a control requirement, I normally prefer internal number ranges.

A Number Range may have multiple intervals. For example, the number range (00001 to 99999) may have intervals (00001 to 9999) and (10000 to 99999). Each interval may be assigned to an individual object. Each object is allowed only one internal number range interval and one external number range interval.

For detail refer following link in SAP lib

Enjoy SAP.
