Removing Serial number Profile
I cannot issue a part that has a Y2 s/n profile but no s/n.
Stock was loaded into SAP from our old system when their was no serial number profile. So we had stock of 1 pof part number 'Y'
The serial number profile of Y2 was added to the material.
We had a delivery of 4, each with its unique serial number, entered at goods receipt. Therefore total stock of 5.
4 have been issued to networks with their serial number, no problem.
The last 1 cannot be issued to a network as the serial number profile was assigned when it was in stock (the stock was not zero'd)
I cannot remove the Y2 profile as the message reads "Serial numbers already assigned to this material" in MM02
Any issue that includes IM will ask for a serial number but none are in the system for part Y.
How can i resolve the problem. How can i issue the stock out to a network?

you can define one serial number profile named Z000 without stock check.And set all the "serial number usage" and "equipment required" as "01".
firstly, change the "serial number profile" into Z000 in MM02. And then you can issue the material to a cost center with movement type 201 without serial number.
secondly, change the "serial number profile" back and receipt the material from cost center with correct serial number.
