Hi,

diff for diff material types will be better one.

It helps in reporting purposes

If it is same you cannot differentiate among material types

hi,

It is always advisable to go external number in material master.You need to study the exisiting legacy system and try to capture the same or extend with some logical thinking by studying the business processes of the organisation and with interaction with core team members in the organisation.

Hi,

Yes u r rite SAP recommends internal number ranges.In all my previous(3) projects v have used external number and it is advisable to go for external number ranges looking behind the logic to differentiate among materials(ie Eg RAW MATERIAL,FINISHED GOODS ETC)

Since your client has suggested for internal number ranges u can go ahead for that.I feel u should give different series for differnet material types so that user can differentiate among material types on long term.

thanks

ok

it depends on client what he requires

u can use different number ranges for diffeent material type

but think before using internal number ranges, because its difficult to upload and lot of procaution should be taken

more over u can skip number in between, as mater number is assigned before saving material master

reward if useful

Hi,

Becoz of following reasons.

1.Differntiate particular material as ROH,FERT,HALB is difficult for the users.

2.Store incharge will face difficulty in differenting and tracing.

3.Uploading material master from legacy data is painfull task when u go for internal number ranges.

Thanks

Hi

Chances of Missing Numbers in Between are more . Say you are creating a materials. The movement you press enter . a number gets generated If you come out with out saving then that number is gone. Many times this problem occurs . its better to go with external number range.

Also you need to configure number ranges in the same client . it cannot be transported.
