Sales order number as project definition number

Dear all

The SAP system I work in, is used to create consulting orders (order to project) and investment projects (project only).

For the investment projects there is the requirement for a project coding mask. For the consulting orders I want to use the sales order number to be the same as the project number.

For what I know, when you do not create a project coding mask, the sales order number is taken automatically to be the project number. However, this is not applicable for us since there is a requirement for the investment projects.

There is no way to link the coding mask to the project profile, so that option is not applicable too.

I have entered a validation rule, to set the coding mask to ' '. The result of this is that SAP want to use the standard WBS number to create the project with, thus resulting in an error.

So, what I am left with, is lots of frustration for now. Do I really have to create an enhancement to get this done? There must be a way to do this using standard SAP.

We are working with EHP4, perhaps in EHP5 there is a (default) solution?
