should Billing document and its cancellation type necessarily have the same number ranges maintained?
We have an issue in releasing to accounting for a cancellation billing document of type S1. (For the parent debit memo of type L2) The error we are encountering is linked to accounting document number range.
In our configuration, we have assigned S1 as cancellation billing type for both F2 and L2 invoice types. In number range assignment, we have assigned same number range to F2 & S1 with same accounting document type linked to both with similar number range assigned. (i.e. accounting doc range same as F2, S1)
But, for L2 we assigned a different number range. (Also a different accounting document type with same number range as L2)
My question is: should Billing document and its cancellation type necessarily have the same number ranges maintained? To make it more clear, I know that they can be different. But, I would like to know if it is an SAP best practice to have same number range for billing type and its cancellation type.
In my case since S1 is linked to both F2 & L2, when I am creating a S1 through L2, I am getting a number range error while releasing the same to accounting. (No problems while releasing S1 creating for an F2 though)
Please help me in understanding this.
