Hi Maria,

Advantage of external number

Firstly you can give name or number which is easy to remember by user.

Second you can use alphabets and number for naming.

Disadvantage of external number

You have to guess all time you create material master.

Advantage of internal number

System will give the next number available so you don't need to take time to think about naming convention.

Disadvantage of internal number

You can only have number(digits) as material master number.
