Introduction
Document numbers for delivery documents in SAP are triggered via the number range assigned to
delivery document type in the IMG path: SPRO -> Logistic Execution / Shipping / Deliveries / Define
Delivery Types


This number range (Eg: "17") is defined under the IMG path: SPRO -> Logistic Execution / Shipping /
Deliveries / Define Number Ranges for Deliveries


Requirement
As the number range is assigned to the delivery document type, you cannot determine different number
ranges for the same delivery document type in different shipping points. For example, if you have two
shipping points in the system and you want to have two different number ranges for delivery document
type "LF" for those two shipping points, then SAP standard number range setting cannot be used
directly.
But this is possible via use exits in the delivery creation.

Solution
 First you need define number ranges per each shipping point under below IMG path:

 Then you have to design a custom table (Let's say "ZDELNORANGE") which can be maintained
via the transaction SM30 with below columns.
o Delivery Type (LFART)
o Shipping Point (VSTEL)
o Number range (NRRANGENR)
 Using transaction SM30, now you can define the number ranges for each delivery type for each
shipping point.
 Now you need ABAP help to code the delivery user exit to trigger this table to determine the
number range based on the shipping point / delivery type combination
o Include - MV50AFZ1
o User Exit - FORM USEREXIT_NUMBER_RANGE USING US_RANGE_INTERN.

Here you need to include an ABAP code, which can select the correct number range from the mentioned
Z table. If you have the correct code there, during delivery document saving, system will trigger this user
exist and find the relevant number range based on the entries in the Z table.
This will enable you to determine different number ranges based on the shipping point / delivery type
combination.
Technical Data
All number ranges are stored in the table “NRIV”
