S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to SSCUI/Business Configuration "Define Number Ranges for Billing Documents".
  2. Then click on 'intervals' and add a custom one. 
  3. When you click in 'save' button an error message appears: "Interval X, prefix overlaps with interval Y, prefix".


Customer is trying to creating a new interval which will overlaps with another one.


To avoid such error message, we recommend to customers either use a new range status. Or in case you want to use the same range status, please use a prefix in front of the new number range.
