Change in batch numbers from 7 digit to 10 digit

Hello Everyone,

I hope all are doing great!

I have a question on how do we change the 7 digit batch number to 10 digit with a prefix say, abc.

No changes are required for parameters like (Material number, storage location and others)

Is there any T-code / report to carry this to mass as more than 400 batches are there lined up.

Any suggestions here are appreciated.

    Better refrain from doing it, you are only creating inconsistencies.

    The batch number is a key field in MCHA, MCH1 and MCHB and is referenced in many other tables and transactions, e.g. LIPS, MSEG, EKPO 

    Better remove all stock and load it again with the right desired number and leave the history as is.

    • What you want is sold as SLO Project by SAP. They have a team which can do it for you and keep the system integrity. They analyze the usage based on the domain, even including your Z-tables and condition tables and then replace old with new value. But honestly you don't want to spend this money just for 400 batches, which will be probably be gone in a month anyway.
