Indicator for Lexicographical

Defines the way numeric material numbers are stored in the database.

a. If this indicator is not set, numeric material numbers are padded with leading zeros and stored right-justified [Material numbers containing at least one non-numeric character are stored left-justified]

Example: if the Internally/externally assigned number If the number is 123 The stored number is 000000000000000123

b. If this indicator is set, and if the material number (numeric or not purely numeric) was assigned externally, it is stored left-justified as entered.

i. Externally assigned number: 123 Stored number: 123

ii. If the material number (numeric only) was assigned internally, it is padded with

Indicator for leading zeros

You can specify whether a numeric material number is to be shown with leading zeros to fill up its defined length.
