Serial Number Partial Picking into QM lot

Hi Experts

Material is having Serial Number Profile and whenever we want to clear the Serial Number Selection over there and want to clear the QM Partially than system will pick the serial number for all and we have to delete the serial number 1 by 1 , what we can do for selection of the Serial Number Range into QM lot

like from 01 to 6000 , we want to select the mid 3000 (2001 to 5000) Serial Number and remaining we will clear after some time but selection option is not there and

deleteing the same is tedious Job.

Pl suggest

    If you have 6000 serial numbers as in your example, how would the system know which groups of serial numbers you want? How could we program it to select 2001-5000? What if on the next inspection lot you need 4000-4500. Or you need 500-1500 and 4321-4783?

    I agree it is tedious. But i'm not sure how it can be made much easier.

    All I can think of is developing a new screen maybe for QA11. See

    Maybe here you can add some check boxes like

    First 500

    Second 500

    Third 500

    Fouth 500



    Have them all default as checked.

    Then a user to uncheck those they don't want posted.

    The next trick would be somehow, when you go to serial number posting, to have it read those fields and select or deslect the correct serial numbers. I don't know how that could be done. Maybe you can see if SAP has an enhancements available there somewhere. Then the user would manually "fine-tune" the list by selecting or deselecting the appropriate serial numbers.

    At least this way you could reduce the number of serial numbers a user has to actually "touch".

    I believe this will be a fairly significant effort to accomplish this.

    User exit ZXQSMU01, which is called during automatic serial number assignment, can be used for this purpose. You may utilize a popup screen to get first and last serial numbers and populate all serial numbers within the exit by programming.
