How to get NEXT free NUMBER for EXTERNALLY assigned RANGEs - SNUM, MD91 ?

Currently Being Moderated

Hi Experts,


I know that, with the FM - NUMBER_GET_NEXT_V1, I can get the next # for most document #s.


But, this FM is ONLY applicable to INTERNAL NUMBER RANGE.


1 - But., am working with EXTERNAL NUMBER RANGE, so looking forward for a FM/BAPI, which gives me next free # for use.


2 - If nothing is there, How to get it done? Is directly grabbing the latest # from the table/data base?


3 - Any other ideas?
