To create number range for your customer account you need to first create the number ranges and then assign it back to the customer account group. You can create different number range for different customer account group or one number range can be assigned to multiple customer account group.
Creation of Number Range for Customer Accounts
You can use transaction code XDN1 or follow the following path;
SPRO > Financial Accounting > Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable > Customer Accounts > Master Records > Preparations for Creating customer master records > Create Number Range for Customer Accounts
To create it you need to click on “Change Intervals” and then “insert interval” or shift+f5. Now on the insert interval screen enter the serial number for your number range, number in the field From Number and number in To Number field. Current number is the number which will be the number after you create a master data. The Tab “ext” represents whether the number will be external numbers or internal numbers. After entering all the details click on “insert” tab on the left end of the screen.
Like discussed above the tab “ext” can be ticked if you want to select the number range as external assignment. If it is to be internally assigned then do not select the number range ext tab.
Prerequisite for creating number range of customer accounts
- Customer Group must be created to which you want to assign the number range
- You must decide whether the number range are required to be external assigned numbers or internally Sap generated number.
Generally for customer account master data creation the number ranges are maintained externally assigned numbers as we want it to be alphanumeric.

SPRO > Financial Accounting > Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable > Customer Accounts > Master Records > Preparations for Creating Customer Master Records > Assign Number Ranges to Customer Account Groups
After reaching in the assignment screen you need to just assign the number range created in the first step against your Customer Account Group.
