1711038 - Values Are Showing For Amount Awaiting Receipt in the GR/IR Inventories - Balance Summary Report


You are running the report GR/IR - Balance Summary to check the clearing of purchases, applying a key date in the past.

Contrary to your expectation there are values shown in the column Amount Awaiting Receipt for a particular purchasing document XYZ although the affected line items are fully delivered and invoiced.

XYZ means the Purchasing Document ID.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Inventory Valuation work center.
  2. Under Reports / List choose the report GR/IR Inventories - Balance Summary.
  3. Select the relevant parameters for your report creation including purchasing document XYZ.
  4. As Key Date you specify a date in the past.


One possible reason is that the corresponding Invoice Receipt for the affected purchasing document was received after the Key Date specified in the report.

Hence the amounts are showing as outstanding.


Check and run the GR/IR Inventories - Balance Summary for a Key Date that possibly includes the relevant Invoice Receipts.

The same applies for the other columns and parameters of this report (Amount Awaiting Invoice, Quantity Awaiting Invoice, Quantity Awaiting Receipt).
