    Hi Arthur,

    I'm coding an addon right now that does a lot of work with items that are managed by serial number. I'm no expert on it whatsoever, but maybe we can help each other out.

    I'm surprised to learn that there is a serial number property on the OITM table. Serial numbers allow us to individually track each unit of the specific item, right? So if there are 15 "widgets" in the warehouse, we should have 15 serial numbers for that item in the OSRI table, so what good does having a serial number on the OITM table do?

    With that said, there is a serialnumbers object in the DI that gives you some access to table OSRI, but I don't believe that this object was meant to be accessed directly. It does not have a getbykey method, nor does it have an update method. I believe that we are meant to access this object via certain document objects like goods receipts, goods issues and documents. For instances the document_lines object has a serialnumbers object. (It also has a serial number field property, like OITM, but I don't get this, either.). So theoretically, anyway, you should be able to access the rows in OSRI through the document lines. For instance on a delivery note if I have one line item that sells 3 'wdigets', I would think that the lines object would give me a serialnumbers object that would let me get at the three serial numbers that the user assigned to that sale. The problem is, that at least via the goods receipt lines object, that doesn't work (the object seems to be returned, but none of the properties are loaded.

    Why do you want to change an existing serial number anyway?
