phys inv docs. Tcode-OMBT Define Number Assignment for Material and Phys. Inv. Docs In this step, you maintain the number assignment for the following documents: • • material documents physical inventory documents

The number assignment for these documents is not to be confused with the number assignment for accounting documents which you completed in the step Define number assignment for accounting documents . The number assignment for accounting documents depends on the document type which is allocated to the transaction. The number assignment for material documents and physical inventory documents depends on the transaction/event type which is also allocated to each transaction in Inventory Management. The transaction/event types are divided into groups of number ranges. A number range interval has to be defined for each group. Note You cannot change the transaction/event types. However, you can change the number range intervals or you can allocate transaction/event types to new groups. Caution: Change in the Fiscal Year If, at the time of a fiscal year change, you reset the number range in the new fiscal year, separate number range intervals for the previous year and for the current year must be maintained for one month to allow postings to the prior period. Example: Interval for 1995: 4900000000 to 4999999999 status: 4900451234 Interval for 1996: 4900000000 to 4999999999 status: 4900000000 If only one number range interval exists for both years and you make any postings to the previous period, the system will assign numbers that already exist in the previous year. This would lead to an update termination.
