How to determine different number ranges for billing documents based on the sales organization


Document numbers for billing documents in SAP are triggered via the number range assigned to billing type in the IMG path: SPRO -> Sales and Distribution / Billing / Billing Documents / Define Billing Types.

This number range (Eg: "19") is defined under the IMG path: SPRO -> SPRO -> Sales and Distribution / Billing / Billing Documents / Define Number Ranges for Billing Documents

How to determine different number ranges for delivery documents based on the shipping point

Sometime back we discussed about having different number range for sales documents based on the sales organization. Click here to view that.
Today we will discuss how we can have different number range for delivery documents based on the shipping point. 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 is defined under the IMG path: SPRO -> Logistic Execution / Shipping / Deliveries / Define Number Ranges for Deliveries
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.

Using events in the delivery document

Let's say you have configured credit management functionality in SAP to block all delivery notes where customer is exceeding the credit limit. In such a case; business request customer to pay the full amount or lesser amount in advance! Here business normally informs the customer, the date that he/she should make the payment. As soon as the payment is made, the goods have to be shipped from the warehouse to the customer.
In such a scenario, business should not hold the delivery note in the SAP system, until customer pays the required amount. If delivery information can be sent down to warehouse system with the date that customer is suppose to made the payment, then warehouse can pick / pack and keep it ready in the warehouse. As soon as the payment is received in SAP and the information is passed to warehouse, the goods can be issued to the customer. This will avoid the delay of warehouse processing after customer places his payment.
Such a business requirement can be handled via events in the delivery note header.
