Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Inventory management > Inquiries > Dimensions > Serial numbers.

Use this form to create or edit serial numbers for an item number.

You can create serial numbers manually from the Serial number field and Microsoft Dynamics AX automatically creates the numbers in the serial numbers table. This table is opened via this form when a packing slip is updated or when an item has arrived or is registered. If items are issued physically, for example, by packing slip or picking list updating, Microsoft Dynamics AX checks that the serial number exists in the serial number table. This prevents items from being sold with serial numbers that have not been created.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.



Overview tab

View and create serial numbers.

General tab

View the serial number dimension and the associated item number. You can also add a manufacturing date to the configuration.

Select an RFID server and a device. The RFID server and the device are used to write a serial number tag or to assign a tag ID to a serial number.

Select inventory dimensions in order to view by dimension any receipts or issues that are related to the serial number.
