Serial number profiles differ


Scenario: we are doing STO between storage locations of one plant to another. The user has to assign serial no. to couple of materials in VL02N after creation of delivery. The problem is, user has assigned serial no of the receiving plant to the material rather entering the supplying plants serial no to the material. (Since there was a problem in valuation class) we had to reverse the delivery, prior to that i removed the EDEL status of the material. Then i executed VL09 to reverse the delivery it is displaying error "Serial number profiles differ"

You want to carry out a transfer posting for materials with serial number management. However, the serial number profiles of the receiving and issuing points are not identical.

System Response

The above situation is not allowed.


Cancel the current processing step.

Check the serial number profiles in the material master record, if required.


how do i proceed... guide me...

Kindly do the needful

    Dear Pavan

    The issue is in your material master.

    Go to material master MM02, input the material code and check the serial number profile maintained in one plant. I think the view you should select is Plant data/storage2 view.

    Same way, you have to check for the other plant also. It should have been the same of above plant. If not, you have to change so as to match the other plant.
