Prefix in serial number

Hello Folks,

I need your expert advice on this.

Can i have a prefix for the serial number generated?

I mean. the serial numbers are generated automatically starting from 0, 1, 2 ... could i have it like 09XXXX0000001, 09XXXX0000002 ... etc where "XXXX" is the material code fetched from a customized ABAP program. "09" is the year stamp.

please revert for details

Thanks much in advance

      hEllo Manish,

      Hoping that you are knowledged about of HUM using serial numbers, i have a scenario.

      Please patiently go through the thread.

      1) there are 3 different HU being used in my Client's business scenario. viz Masters, Inners and Pieces

      ( the relation betn the three is number of Pieces make a Inner carton, and number of Inners make a Master carton.) (ex : 10 Pieces = 1 Inner, 10 inners = 1 Master)

      2) three different range of serial numbers have to be generated and the system should connect the Masters, Inners and Pieces serial numbers. ( like the details about pieces inside an Inner and details about Inners inside a master is to be linked and to be displayed when called for.)

      Hope you have got the scenario. if more explanation is required, please revert.

      Thanks for the reply
