internal number assignment for materials

Hi, all.

I need your help. In my system, material code is 5 digit number. Material code is created and assigned internally. But If i terminate transaction - MM01 when I create material master, next material code is not sequencial.

ex.) last material code -> 99

next material code -> 100

during create new material master in MM01 I terminated transaction and not saved. After that I created a material master successfully. But material code is not 100, it is 104.

Usually I use 'MMNR' for eliminate blank section. But is there any way to prevent blank code period is created? Is it IMG setting or SAP standard policy.

Thank you.

Go to transaction SNRO and find the number range object for the material master code which you are using and enter this object in SNRO transaction. You will find a field No. of numbers in buffer. If any number is there in that field mak it 0. I feel there is number 4 in that field thats why you are getting 4 numbers skiping.
