Serial number issue-Production order release-PPRL

Hi experts,

The serial number issue is seems to be very strange.

Number range has been maintained only for equipment category " S".

Equipment number range interval : From number : 000000000000000001 to ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ number. and it has Flag ed for External number range.

I have attached the Serial number profile.

Users are working with serial number long time.

User has enter 2 serial numbers OE-30037979-04-001 and OE-30037979-04-002 during Production order XXX1 release, System allowing to us release. They are using so often. No issue.They are often using similar kind of serial number nomenclature

But when user has created another production order XXX2(recently).Entered 2 serial number OE-30037979-01-001 and OE-30037979-01.-002 and released the production. While saving the production order, System is throwing the below error message.

Number range does not exist for equipment

Message no. IS039


No equipment (sapevent:DOCU_LINK\GL:equipment) number ranges have been created.


Create the number ranges for the number range object EQUIP_NR.

Use the customizing function to allocate equipment categories to number ranges:

Proceed (sapevent:DOCU_LINK\DS:TRAN.OIEN)

If you are not allowed to perform the function, contact your system administrator

Note:*** PM module has not Implemented***Only Serial numbers are using For logistic modules and CS.****

Please let me how to proceed to solve this issue

    In IQ01 have you created Serial Numbers?

    Check by Creating serial numbers directly in t-code IQ01 or IQ04.

    Remove the check box from Indicator: Serial Number Existence Requirement in OIS2 for

    the particular serial no profile that is assigned in the work scheduling view of the material master.

    Best Regards,

    • Hi Rupesh,

      Sorry for late reply. The root cause of the issue was serial level '1' not maintained in material master by user. They are maintaining material levels 1 for Serialized materials. We have maintained it and system allowed us to maintained serial number.

      Issue is resolved. Closing the thread.
