Internal number range / external numbe range for backend vendor data
What are the real advantages in internal number range / external number (r/3) range when you do BBPGETVD.
Any constarins are there ? I wanted to freeze this during my Blue print itself either internal range or exteranl when i pull the data from r/3.
How can we convince the business user this time. What SAP advise us regarding this ?
Any help is appreciated.

Hi. If you are creating vendors in R/3 and replicating them to SRM then it is just easier to use the same numbers in both systems by ticking "only transfer R/3 numbers" in BBPGETVD.
There is no technical reason for this, but if users are creating shopping carts in SRM, then invoices are being paid from R/3, it will be easier if the same numbers are used if there is a query with the invoice or something.
This way all users whether they look in R/3 or SRM will see the same numbers and it will make communications between departments easier.
