    it looks like you are adopting your vendors serial numbers as you own, in that case it might be a rare situation, but unavoidable that you run into such issues.

    SAP is usually expecting that you define the serial number for your self, hopefully from an internal number range.

    if you work with external numbers then you may need to use a prefix to make it unique

    Hi Shital,

    We can one serial number for two different material codes , but you cannot have same serial number for same material twice which will be a duplicate.
