Cause

Error messages occurs because there is no active Barcode selected in Business Configuration.

For using Serial Numbers, it is necessary to enable Bar Code (i.e. Automatic Identification) functionality in the Business Configuration and to maintain the correct Application Identifier relevant for your Bar Code scanning.

Resolution

  1. Navigate to Business Configuration work centre.
  2. Go to Implementation Project view.
  3. Select the relevant Implementation Project and click on the Open Activity List button.
  4. In the Activity list, Show All Activities and search for ‘Bar Code Type UCC/EAN 128’ (ensure it is scoped).
  5. Select the Activity ‘Bar Code Type UCC/EAN 128’ and click on the Open button.
  6. In the ‘Bar Code Type UCC/EAN 128’ screen, we recommend that you use the provided standard EAN128 Bar Code type which contains all relevant Application Identifiers including 21 for Serial Numbers.
  7. Once you set the EAN128 Bar Code type active, you should be able to Post Goods Issue with Serial Number without the error.
  8. After saving your changes, you may need to log out of the system for these to take effect.
