When you enter a document, such as an invoice, you can assign a document number or let the system assign one. When you use next numbers, the system assigns numbers to receipts, journal entries, and other documents in two ways:
Next Number | Description |
---|---|
Standard next numbers | The system finds the next available number in the Next Numbers table (F0002) and assigns the number to the document. |
Next numbers by company and fiscal year | The system assigns a unique set of next numbers for each company, fiscal year, or combination of company and fiscal year in the Next Numbers by Company/Fiscal Year table (F00021). |
