Can we delete Number ranges of Vendor (XKN1)

Hello All,

I am shaffe, As I have encountered an error while I am trying to post an vendor invoice (f-43) then it said


so I went back to 'Create vendor number ranges' (xkn1) and I created number ranges with "19" and mistakely given current number is also, and saved it.

Now I could not able to post an invoice of vendor , as I am getting the same above error, and other hand I could not able to delete 19 number range in my company code.

Can anyone provide me solution for this.

HI Shaffe,

You can delete the number range, but before you do that please consider below points:

1. Vendor already created using number range 19 will still exist in system.

2. If you try to use same number range again, it will cause in-consistency in database.

Keeping above points in mind, it is not sugessted to delete number range.

But if you still feel you need to do that:

1. Reset the current number to 0. (In Extra menu, you will find option to set current number)

2. select the number range to be deleted Click in - Sign above to delete number range.

Hope that helps.
