while migratng the Source List I find the filed " Number" in the EORD table ( Field - EORD-ZEORD)

I would kike to know the importance of the Field in Source List

I dont find this number specified anywherer in the Sourcelist under ME01.

The Help command states below :

Number of Source List Record

Alphanumeric key uniquely identifying the document.

This counter is assigned internally by the system at material master plant segment level.

But still I could not understand where its available in the Material Master nor the purpose of this number specified.

Could anyone enlight me on this point please ?

EORD-ZEORD is a counter for accommodating multiple source list records for the same Material/Plant combinations with different validity dates. If you have multiple records for the same Material/Plant, you need to consider this while doing custom development.
