How to configure EBP to address two PO number ranges for one backend system

We are using EBP 3.5 and are creating R/3 purchase orders from EBP shopping carts using EC document type in the R/3 backend. We currently use a BADI in EBP to determine when to flag a line item for goods receipt before creating the PO in R/3. We have a requirement to create a unique number range for the POs in R/3 that require a goods receipt versus EBP orders that do not require a goods receipt. We are having difficulty determining how EBP can be configured to address two PO number ranges in one backend R/3 system.
Hi,

In standard SRM/EBP there is no functionality via configuration to automatically create different PO numbers. Having...

said that, you can create new document types and utilize a couple of BADIs to activate the document types based on a trigger in the shopping cart. For each document type you have the ability to create a new PO number range. Define this number range in EBP and in SAP R/3.

You'll need to utilize BADIs: CHANGE SHOPPING CART and PO CREATE BADI
