Serial nr. stock check in material master

48 Views

Hello,

we are currently dealing with problems that emerge from the fact that users are ignoring the warning message while putting the serial number profile to material master with stock. I want to prevent them from doing so and force to deal with the stock first so I want to change IO233 to error message. I found out that the message is actually hardcoded in the standard FM MARC_SERNP which is used while checking this:

IF SY-SUBRC = 0 AND

NOT BEST_FLAG IS INITIAL.

CASE P_MESSAGE.

WHEN ' '.

MESSAGE W233(IO).

WHEN 'I'.

MESSAGE I233(IO).

WHEN 'N'.

ENDCASE.

ENDIF.

As this is a standard FM and as they say look before you leap, or think twice before you change the SAP standard, do you have any other idea how to resolve this?

The serial profile has the stock check set to 2 - inconsistency lead to error, however this is probably not affecting the material master handling.

Thank you for your ideas
