Lemma 31.24.4. Let $X$ be a locally Noetherian scheme having no embedded points. Let $\mathcal{L}$ be an invertible $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. Then $\mathcal{L}$ has a regular meromorphic section.

**Proof.**
For each generic point $\eta $ of $X$ pick a generator $s_\eta $ of the free rank $1$ module $\mathcal{L}_\eta $ over the artinian local ring $\mathcal{O}_{X, \eta }$. It follows immediately from the description of $\mathcal{K}_ X$ and $\mathcal{K}_ X(\mathcal{L})$ in Lemma 31.24.3 that $s = \prod s_\eta $ is a regular meromorphic section of $\mathcal{L}$.
