Serial number in the Equipment Master record

Hi Everybody,

The scenario is we are assigning the serial number to the material in the outbound delivery application. Once the delivery is done, the equipment master is created with the Equipment category as E and all the informations related to the material such as the serial number are assigned in it.

We successfully tested the process in the sandbox client and now we are configuring this in the Golden client. When I create the equipment master record now with the already created serial number, the system throws an error message, "Serial number already exists for the material".

Is there any configuration step we are missing in the serial number profile or in the Equipment related data?

Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Srinivasan

    1) Are you using the "Eqpt" checkbox in the 'Maintain Serial Numbers' window to create the Equipment in the background when the delivery is saved? Or you are just entering the Serial number and trying to create the Equipment manually using IE01 post-delivery creation? Your question is not clear, If you are doing the latter, do the former.

    2) Did you check if the Material- Serial Number combination already exist for some reason using IQ03 whenever you got the message.

    Let me know.
