2044413 - Serial Numbers are not copied into PR from SO

Symptom

Serial numbers flows from Sales Order to Purchase Requisition in 3 ways

  • Go to Menu option Extras -> Technical objects and Enter Serial numbers manually.
  • Go to Menu option Extras -> Technical objects and Click Button 'Create Serial no automatically'
  • User will not go to the serial number screen at all in sales order and directly SAVE the sales order. Function LOG_MM_SERNO must be active

In the first 2 options the Serial Numbers are copied from the Sales Order into the Purchase Requisition as expected, but using the third option the Serial numbers are not copied.

Remark:

  1. If the serial number profile attached to the material master is automatic serialized, SAP will generate serial numbers in background in sales order.
  2. If the Purchase order created directly from Sales order using ALE scenarion then the serial numbers are not copied from reference document to the created purchase order. This is because in this scenario there is no Purchase Requisition is created (from the SO)
