We just started to use ERP Next few weeks ago and are still learning the system.
One of our users imported some serial numbers for a specific item (which is actually a variant of an item). And we made a stock entry (material receipt) for these serial numbers (and some others).
In fact these serial numbers were corresponding to an other variant of this item. So, I now would like to edit these serial numbers to update the item code by the right one. But I can’t do that.
Anyone could help me ?
Thanks in advance,
Welcome to ERPNext vg-scarlier
What you are describing relates to this https://erpnext.org/docs/user/manual/en/setting-up/settings/naming-series
‘I now would like to edit these serial numbers to update the item code by the right one’
Typically a naming_series cannot be changed once it is initially set, at least not at the GUI level. You may have to update records in your database. A mistake here can compromise its integrity…
Thank you for your answer. I understand that we need to get a validation process before submitting.
What I finally did is the following :
- Material issue to remove SN from stock
- Bulk rename to edit SN by something like ERROR-SN
- SN creation with correct item code
So you will use this tool Sebastien?
Be sure to use a test environment or copy of production, save a backup of your database or snapshot of your VM and so on.
A brief report of your learnings to let us know how that goes would be instructive, please and thanks.
