We are now Upgrading FROM 126.96.36.199 To r12.1.3.
The 'Lot' field under Batch material Details -> Pending Product Lots is mandatory, Which is very bad for us.
Our Current (11i) business process for creating Product lots, is to 1st allocate the 'Lot', and later on allocate and complete the 'Sublots' within this lot.
The equivalent process in r12 should be: 1st allocate the 'Parent Lot', and later on allocate and complete the 'lots' within this Parent lot.
Question: Is there any way to set the 'Lot' field to be optional?
