Serial Number in Subcontracting Scenario: ECC 5.0


Hello Experts,

System Landscape: ECC 5.0

Scenario: Subcontracting of serialized material- A material is sent to subcontractor which is having a serial number. When I receive material back from Subcontractor, I need to enter same serial number while posting GR. Unfortunately, system does not allow me to post the GR with same serial number and shows the error msg as " This serial number already exists in the system".

ECC 6.0 has a Serial Number Profile 'POSL' which does address the same issue, but as of ECC 5.0 I could not find help on this.

Looking forward for your kind help.

Thanks and Regards,
