Serial Numbers in Inventory Management – Warehouse Managed storage location

Serial Numbers in Inventory Management u2013 Warehouse managed storage locations

We want to run inventory cycle at the warehouse for materials. These materials are u2018serial numberedu2019 in the material master. During the initial entry (say GR) of the materials, systems prompt for the serial numbers. At this point, system offers option of assignments of serial numbers automatically.

While running an inventory cycle for warehouse u2013 and posting difference at WM level (LI01), system is throwing error as u201Cmaintain serial number for totol quantityu201D. System does not promt me to enter the serial number for the materials (count) which are found excess/shortage duing the inventory cycle.

Is there any configuration where this scenario can be managed; system should prompt us to enter serial number while posting differenes at WM level (LI20).

The inventory cycle is -

1. Create Physical Inventory Documents - LI01N

2. Activate Physical Inventory Document - LI02N

3. Enter Count - LI11N

4. Post Differences at WM level - LI20

5. Post Differences at IM level(If Differences are posted at WM ) - LI21

    Hi,

    Generally system don't prompt to enter serial number during li20. An alternative could be you can do cycle counting with Rf transaction LM59 for the serialised material. Here clarance is the issue, need to create one mare transaction to clear the differences of serialized material like LI20. Thanking you.

    Had the same problem. Theres an OSS note to fix this if you search for ZLI21, you'll be able to enter serial numbers when clearing differences in IM.

      The way our systems configured, and yours is probably the same serial numbers are stored at IM level (not WM). So you'll not be prompted for serial numbers in WM transactions only when clearing WM to IM! For example you'll not see serial numbers for stock in your WM bins, only in your IM storage location.
