Localization as a Self-Service


Let's now focus on the extensibility side of the house and look at some cross-country innovations in the area of our Official Document Numbering (ODN) Framework which we introduced in 2302.

Official Document Numbering (ODN) Framework enables you to configure a gapless sequential document identification number, typically based on the legal requirement of your country. This solution also lets you to create a document reference ID which you can enter manually.

Integration of ODN Between Customer Invoices and their Accounting Documents


So far, we only supported the generation of SD billing documents for order to cash scenarios. Now with 2308, we introduce the ODN integration of customer invoices with the corresponding accounting documents.

Capturing of ODN in Supplier Invoices


In addition, we have a new feature that ODN is now captured in supplier invoices too. As you might know the ODN framework  primarily aims at addressing the needs of customer-local versions, but is now used also in SAP-delivered versions such as e.g. the local version for Israel, where the ODN framework is also enabled to be used for capturing supplier invoices.
