How will you know NR number assigned to a Task list Type in SAP PM?
Option 1 – By going to OIL4/OIL5/OIL0
Lets take an example you want to identify active internal number rage for General Maintenance task list. Go to OIL4 transaction. Here If you click on “NR Status” button, you will see list of all existing Number ranges available for that particular task list type. By looking at NR status column, you can guess which Number range is active currently. But challenge comes in picture when you see more than one Number range is having used numbers in number ranges as shown in following screen.
Work-around – Go to IA05, create a general task list, if your group number is taken as 100005, you can assume NR number 03 is currently active. If your group number is taken as 49, you can assume NR number 01 is currently active for task list type A.
Option 2 – By following SPRO path for Routings
This is more accurate and less time consuming way to identify the NR number assignment for your task list type. Go to SPRO menu path mentioned below.
Production – Basic Data – Routing – Control Data – Maintain Task List Types and Set SET/GET Parameters
Here if you execute Maintain Task List Types and Set SET/GET Parameters you will be asked to enter a task list type as below. Enter task list type ( example A in our case) & Click on continue button.
In above picture, you can see that internal NR number 01 is currently active for Task list type A.
