This is short Post about Significance of the Receiving Option "Validate Serial Numbers on RMA Receipts" for Serial Control Items In Oracle Applications ( Receiving Module)
Today while exploring some receiving Stuff I learn something New about Receiving option "Validate Serial Numbers on RMA Receipts".This is a check box control
I have observed that I we have this value UNCHECKED then If we Create an RMA (Linked to a Sales Order) , then while doing Receiving against the RMA , in the Receiving Transaction Form , List of Values on field
1.Start Serial Number
2.End Serial Number
should display only the Serial no. that we have shipped on the referenced?liked Sales Order Number , but to my surprise , displays all the Serial Numbers of the Item that got Shipped on different outgoing sales Order line for a particular warehouse ( in which you are doing transaction).
But if you set the value for this Receiving Option as CHECKED , then while doing the Receiving against an RMA then it will show you only serial numbers that got shipped on the Linked/referenced Sales Orders for that RMA.
Good learning for me , may be for you too.
