Automatic batch creation in return delivery before doing PGR?

Hi All

We are trying to implement batch management during a return delivery process and we are having trouble with the batch management functions and serial number. Can anyone help me with the following questions?

1. Is it possible to create a batch from a RETURN delivery while in the create/Change mode. The batch create button seems to be available but it is grayed out. We are looking for a function like what is available on a goods receipt. (before pressing PGR)

2. Is it possilbe to get the batch details (Classify --> batch) from return delivery change transaction so that batch characteristics can be seen and/or entered.

And please note that since the return material is serialized system will not allow to enter serial number untill batch number is entered but we want system to create the internal batch number this can be achieved only after clicking the PGR button. but we cannot do PGR without entering the serial number. Both serial number entry and automatic batch creation in return delivery conflicting. please suggest.

Regards,

CS

    Not very clear on your questions, however assuming I understand a bit on your requirements, I try to answer;

    1. Is it possible to create a batch from a RETURN delivery while in the create/Change mode. The batch create button seems to be available but it is grayed out. We are looking for a function like what is available on a goods receipt. (before pressing PGR)

    - You can't create new batch during returns delivery processing (create/change). However you can select batch, using auto batch determination. Check the item category (t.code 0VLP) for returns , and check the box auto batch determination for it. Also make sure you have batch search strategy record created in VCH1 for the customer/material or material or customer data.Then you can use auto determination in the returns delivery.

    2. Is it possilbe to get the batch details (Classify --> batch) from return delivery change transaction so that batch characteristics can be seen and/or entered.

    Select the delivery line item, click on batch split button, then in next screen click on the batch determination button, then in the further screen, when the system selects the batch, double click on the batch, the system will display the characteristics.

    Regards,
