  1. 2.1.1 Internal Number Assignment

The system automatically assigns a number when we create the document.

We must make the following settings for internal number assignment:

    • Type of number assignment
    • Enter the internal number range
    • Enter the program for the number assignment

In the standard system, number assignment is controlled by the MCDOKZNR program.

Mixed number assignment means that part of the document number can be assigned internally by the system, and the other part can be assigned by the user.

We must make the following settings for internal number assignment:
