Now they want to maintain single vendor code.

You can't decrease the total number but can get it structured better.

Create 2 different Vendor types with different number ranges

a) Invoicing Vendor - Create General,CoCode and data. once per Vendor

b) Supplying Plant - Create General, data. for each plant of the vendor

When you create the PO use the partner functions to specifiy that the invoice is from a) but goods supplier is b). This way FI (and hence for the payment) has only a single vendor a) to deal with, but you still have the details from where the goods came from.

Kind regards
