Hi,

You can check the following text from the Note 916152.

Kindly check the steps in the Demo database for the batch as the following is for serial numbers :


Symptom

There is a business need to assign serial numbers to items that are in stock.

Cause

Application Workaround

Solution

SAP Business One does not allow to assign serial numbers to items with stock on hand.

Workaround:

1. Determine how many items are in each warehouse and make a note of it.

2. Go to 'Stock Transactions' -> 'Goods Issue' and issue all items in stock from all warehouses.

3. Go into the 'Item Master Data' -> Tab 'General' -> 'Manage Item By' -> select 'Serial Numbers' from the drop-down menu

4. Under 'Management Method' select 'On Release Only'

5. Tick the box for 'Automatic Serial Number Creation on Receipt'

6. Go to 'Stock Transactions' -> 'Goods Recipt' and receive all items back into stock in all warehouses using the same price list as used before in the 'Goods Issue'.

7. Go to 'Item Management' -> 'Serial Numbers' -> 'Serial Number Management'

8. Select 'Operation - Update', select the item code, select 'Goods Receipt' from the tab 'Stock Posting'

9. Either manually assign serial numbers to the received stock or choose 'Automatic Creation' and proceed as normal.

Kind Regards,

Hi Malhaar....

It is system validation if your item has Stock then you can not set the Item as Batches.

You have to make the stock NIL......

Hi,

You can use either Goods Issue or Stock Take to make the on hand equal to 0. Then reverse the same quantity back after setting change.

Thanks,
