Hi Guys,

what kind of scenario would you suggest for the following requirement:

Customer purchases electronic parts via MM. These parts are handled as serial numbers / equipments in the system (for the use of As-built Configuration at customer sites). As these parts are posted GR, the vendor will send over a file containing the external serial numbers and additional information like Software Release version of the single pieces. This information should be stored in a characteristic (class 002 for the equipment). I know the possibility of manually reading an external file at the time of goods receipt for getting the serial numbers into the system, but how and when should I create the classification for each and every single serial number /equipment. Any ideas? My suggestion was a downstream Z-transaction after GR, where to read the file again and create/fill the classification of each equipment via BAPI. Any ideas about userexit at the time of GR posting, creation of equipments in background,...?

Thanks for your support

Why not create a bbatch program that reads the GR documents for the required fil data. Then create the equipment classification.

You could thn schedule the batch program to run periodically (say each night).
