Hello, 
 
How do you restrict not allowing duplicate serial numbers to be used for the same part number?

    Hi, As far as I know this can only be customized. Hopefully the following solution can give you some hints.

    Hi,
     
    I don't think it's possible by default, but you can develop a custom routine to check Serial No. is already used or not.

    What if we have Specific SN Tracking turned Off? 
    SN Specific Tracking needs to be turned on. If its off, you will be able to post duplicate serial numbers. 
     
     
    I think Specific SN Tracking is on by default. But if it is off, BC still check if duplicate no. are used.
     
    No, if its off BC will not check.

    Valentin,

    We are only assigning the serial at the time of Manufacture on production orders.

    If the serial number is already in inventory, the system checks for this.
     
    For example, I tried to post a positive adjustment for the same item/serial no. and I received the following message
     
     
    This is the item tracking code used:
