    I am sure you are aware that Serial numbers are unique numbers used to identify each unit of the Product.

    So for example, If you have items A and B and you are buying or making 10 pieces of A, then all the 10 pieces would have a different Serial number

    A 000001

    ...000002

    ...000003

    ..

    ..

    If this is what you want then I would suggest that you use Batch numbers.

    You should look at the Unique Serial number setting in the Admin .> System Initis > General Settings.. Inventory tab

    Dear Misak,

    The usage of serial no.s is derived from the fact that all the items have unique serial no.s what I mean is all teh items ..to differentiate each item from one another we use the serial no. it is unique per item. Hence you cannot siign one serila no. to all items.

    Now if you do want to give a unique no. for a set of say 100 items you will have to use the batch no. functionality. Youacn divide the batch of say 100 pcs into 5 Batches of 20 each for e.g. and have a single no. assigned to all the 20 items ina single batch which would be the batch no. of that batch.

    Hope I have answered your question.

    Hi,

    In Administration -> General Setting -> Inventory Tab, Select "Unique Serial Numbers by = Manf No OR Lot Number" Then you can have Same Serial Numbers Like A will have 0001 for all A Products & B will have 0002 for all B Products.

    Hope this will solve.

    Rgd,

    • Dear Misak

      Please use the noraml Serial No. Functinality:

      1. Item Master Level the Managment Method should be On Release only or for Every Transaction.

      2. Say it is for every Transaction.Then when your creating the Receipt from production the system will prompt you to create the serial no.s

      3. create the serial as per the item giving unique no.s to all of them i.e. you can give A - 101 and A - 102 etc by pressing the Creat serial No. tab below.

      Hope this ansers your question.
