Duplicated Inventory Items: how to tell

Hi all,

my question could seem strange: is there some way one can tell an Inventory Items has been created by duplication ? Why in the world would I want to know that you may ask ?

Well there is a bug in 8.81 PL07: if you create an item B by duplicating item A, and then create a BOM of type 'Template' for item B, you can't use item B either in Sales or purchasing documents because SBO crashes. This is quite embarrassing to say the least. I created a message with SAP and learned that PL09 does have this issue, which is good news. But the problem is that we can't move that customer to PL09, because sadly it breaks Trimergo.

Hence my question, how can one identify the items that come from duplication ? Looks like a item created by duplication i somewhat different than an item created from scratch. If I could identify what's the difference, then I could fix the broken items.

Thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    At my point if we know about that what is exact issue and what is the solution then why we are not going to solution.

    means i want to say that if we can not move PL 09,then guide your client user that it(duplicate) is not right way .

    if user not agree then goto higher level management for same.

    Put right then get right..

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You cant tell if the item is duplicated or not. Do you have any add-or or formatted search running

    during adding the document, try to disable it temporary.

    I always use duplication to fasten my item creation and so far no problem encountered.

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    Clint
