Cannot update existing Batch number using Batch Management Update operation

Hi SAP Experts,

Why does the system do not allow updating of existing Batch Number using Batch Management Update operation as compare to Serial Number Management Update operation where both the Mfr Serial No. and Serial Number fields can be updated?

Please enlighten me.

    Dear Ms Tan,

    Unfortunately, I did not find a note that answer to this question.

    I reckon that the reason why it is not possible to change the batch once it was created is because the batch can be partly delivered as one single batch can be allocated to more than one unit of the item.

    E.g. It could happen that the user assigns batch n. abc to qty 10 of item B.

    If item B is delivery for qty 5, the batch will be partially delivered. If changes occur after the deliveries discrepancies can occur.

    To avoid changing the batch will avoid causing discrepancies.
