CO02: Inhibit manual change of serial numbers

SAP ERP 6.0: We are working with automatic serial number generation in the production order.

However, the user can change the automatically generated serial numbers manually (menu path: header -> serial numbers...)

Is there a possibility to inhibit the manual change of the serial numbers?

    Usually, you can build a transaction variant (use SHD0) to restrict changes to specific fields on a transaction. I have never used for a popup like the one you see when changing serial numbers, but it might work. After creating the transaction variant in SHD0, you can create a new transaction code in SE93, assigning the variant created.
