Connection object Number Ranges

Hi Experts,

Internal number range was not working in Connection object

When I press enter at ES55 screen the following message was coming

Internal number assignment not possible for structured key


You have not entered a connection object, device location key, or a property key.

Since the key has structure XXXX-XXX-AA-NN, a number cannot be assigned internally.

System Response

The transaction was terminated.


Assign a key with structure XXXX-XXX-AA-NN.

After this message I have deleted the existing number ranges and added new number ranges in configuration settings,

NO: 01 From No: 1 To No:10000 current no: 0

NO: 02 From No: 10001 To No:20000 ext after that both internal and external number ranges were not working. How to resolve this error please guide me.

Could be your functional location is expecting an external range.

Verify your settings under SAP Utilities > Master Data > Basic Settings > Devfine Structure Indicator and Category of Functional Locations.

Also since you changed your number range to start with 1 now, you don't have any data out there currently that already exists in the number range, right?
