Error Message "Maintain Serial Numbers for Total Quantity" during creation of transfer order

0 Kudos

Hi SAP Consultants,

Have testing for scenario "Goods Issue". The first test step is creating reservation number using MB21. The next step is creating Transfer Order using an enhanced t-code (not using t-code MIGO). Have encountered error "Maintain serial numbers for total quantity".

Why the system asks for serial number during creation of transfer order? How can we resolve this issue?


My thought is we cannot assign serial number during creation of reservation number using MB21 unless there is button in the t-code to do that.

Have already assigned serial number using t-codes IQ04 and MIGO 561. But the error still manifest.


Hope you can help me guys.

Helle Jere,

Here you are moving material from one location to other via Transfer Order.

I believe this material is serialized hence it is asking serial number for all quantity you are moving with this Transfer Order.

Serial number validations works as per the serial number profile in material master.

Please check the below things :

1.Check the serial number profile in Material Master tab Plant data / Stor 2 .

2.Check whether you have maintained serial numbers for all quantity .
