Dear All,

Is it possible to assign external equipment number during creating serial number? Normally, system auto-assign number to equip.

Sami Li,

I've never tried this before but my guess is that SAP will not let you create an equipment with external number. This may be because the equipment is created in the background and the user never sees the number field.

You can assign Ecxternal no's to Equipment. Check config in OIEN in the IMG. If you were not ale to assign ext, no's how will you be able to upload data whe you upgrade?

Of course you can assign an external number range to equipment. But the original poster was asking if it's possible to use an external number when the system creates an equipment in the background through serial number management. The answer is "no."
