I have question-related to Auto and unique batch number all Purchase order line.
I have one purchase order and having 400 Items in one purchase order. While posting product receipt, I wish to have one batch number for all Purchase lines and should be auto-created without the registration process.
Means all 400 line one batch number (Batch-001) without registration and item arrival.
Is this possible in standard?
Thanks in advance !!
If you made the automatic numbering sequence for every item to be the reference order it would give each line the purchase order number as the batch number.
I would suggest however that this makes batch traceability a little pointless.
Thanks for your reply, I have very limited use of Batch number so I don't want each line of the purchase order new number. I wish to have one bach number for all the purchase line Items.
My use of batch number is just to trace back purchase order only
Then take the original suggestion, but it seems a lot of overhead when in reality the trace back can be done through the transactions, unless you have a real batch tracability requirement through the tiers of BOMs etc. However the choice is yours, if you need it you need it.
Thanks, Can you please suggest how to set up auto batch number as purchase order number for all Purchase line Items.
Thanks, Adam, I think it will help me.
But going beyond I want user defined number sequence for all Purchase lines.
We are into truck manufacturing industry so 1000 Items in Purchase order comes with some specific and unique batch number.
You understand that is completely different to your original request though?.
I suggest you look at the batch number group field on the released product record on the Manage Inventory fasttab. If you look at that setup you get the "Structure" element in "General". If you just ticked "Reference Number" every line would be given the PO number, if you also added Number Sequence Code you could define a number sequence that differentiates per purchase line, but specific to Item. You could also consider creating different batch number groups for different formats of items.
