Assigning Serial No. to PR in SAP MM


We want to trace the material ( T-8000 : Semi-Finished ) activities with serial numbers. I created a new serial no. profile by the following activities…


  1. Business Function, LOG_MM_SERNO is activated through SFW5 transaction.
  2. Created a new profile within OIS2 transaction ( Z003 : PRSL & POSL ) with SerUsage : 01 & EqR : 02.
  3. IMG: Materials ManagementàPurchasing-->Purchase Requisition-->Define Document types with SerUsage : 03 & EqR : 02.
  4. IMG: Materials ManagementàPurchasing-->Purchase Order-->Define Document types with SerUsage : 03 & EqR : 02.
  5. Assigned the profile “Z003” to “General Plant Data / Storage 2” view of Material Master.

After doing the above settings, I tried to create a Purchase Requisition in ME51N.


In Material Data tab, I selected Assign Serial Number . Clicking on the Icon brings up the Maintain Serial Numbers window where I cannot find “ Create Serial Number Automatically ” option.


When I tried to enter the serial no. “2” manually, the following Error Message is Displayed “ No New serial Number can be entered for material T-8000 (2) - Message no. IO214”.


Pls Guide me.


Thanks in advance,

Dinesh Kumar V.

    Hi Dinesh,

    in the serial number profile in OIS2 you said you have selected usage as 01. 01 stands for No serial numbers are assigned, please change the usage to 03 as per your PR and PO settings.

    Regards

    Abhishek
