The IDs of SEPA mandates are often required to be unique across systems, such as SAP CRM and SAP ERP.
That’s why customers ask how number ranges are defined for SEPA mandates when implementing the SEPA functionality also in SAP CRM, not only in SAP ERP.
This is how it works:
- The ID of a SEPA mandate in SAP CRM is defined in SAP ERP.
- When creating a SEPA mandate in SAP CRM the number range definition of the connected SAP ERP is called and used. An ID is generated according to this definition and reserved for it. The mandate is created with this ID already in SAP CRM.
- With this ID the SEPA mandate is created also in SAP ERP, during data replication.
Therefore you need to define the number ranges for SEPA mandates only once, in SAP ERP, not a second time in SAP CRM.
The definition of number ranges in SAP ERP is just used in SAP CRM.
You can also use the enhancement possibilities for number ranges in SAP ERP. They are just applied in SAP CRM.
This concept results in unique SEPA mandate IDs in SAP CRM and SAP ERP.
