Dear Subrat

Once we assign the number range during the initial period, habitually we don't see or monitor the number ranges and as you said, if any of the number ranges exhausted, then system will restart from the first number you have assigned for that period.

For example, if you assign number range as 1230001 and ends with 1240000 and during the middle of the year, the number range crosses 124000, for the next document, again it will consider 1230001. The most important thing is that such newly created datas will be updated with again 1230001 in the respective tables.

At that stage, that is in the middle of the year, the only option is to assign a new number range which is available. Unless you are not confident about that it will not get exhausted, better assign a new number range.

You can consider the thumb rule as previous years' number of documents generated and based on this, you can take a decision.

Hope this inputs help you to take a decision. !!!!!
