    Hi,

    Check the batch details in MSC2N.

    Here give the material, batchnumber, plant, storage location etc.

    In the data, you can change the expiry date of the batch (ensure if this has got some business implications though)

    Hi,

    From what Item category of invoice are to trying to create the debit memo request? What is the item category that is being determined in the debit memo request and credit memo request?

    My guessing is that the item categories that are getting determined in debit memo request and credit memo request have "Automatic Batch Determination" tick on in General Control of Item category configuration. This needs to be changed.

    Two ways that I can think off are

    a. Go to copy control for billing documents to sales documents (Tcode: VTAF). Select your source document type (Invoice type) and Destination doc type (Debit/Credit memo type). Go into the item category. Now, select the item category of the invoice from which you are trying to copy. See whether system has to propose it or if there is an item category already there.

    If the item category is already there, then, you need to go to item category configuration (sales and distribution > sales > sales documents > sales document items > define item categories) and check if "Automatic Batch Determination" is ticked on in General Control. If yes, then you will have to remove it. Save and transport to your prod system.

    If item category is not present, then, you will have to then check item category determination (sales and distribution > sales > sales documents > sales document items > Assign item categories) to see which item category will be determined. Then follow the above said procedure to uncheck the "Automatic Batch Determination".

    b. In case a is not true, then, you will have to check what is present in the copy routine. You may also have to check the user exit that may have been used in the sales order while creation. You will have to take ABAPer's help for the same.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks
