2194914 - Reference Documents Field Missing in the New Scanned Invoice Document


You are creating new scanned invoice from the Supplier Invoicing work center. However the field Reference Documents missing in the new scanned invoice screen and you cannot select the order references.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Go to the Common Tasks section
  3. Select New Scanned Invoice
  4. You cannot see the standard field Reference Documents (Order ID)


You have not scoped the prerequisite i.e. Purchase Requests and Orders work center in your scoping and hence the field "Reference Documents" is not visible in the New Scanned Invoice screen. In order to enable this field, the Purchase Order must exist in the system.


You need to scope the Purchase Requests and Orders work center in your scoping. Because always the reference document for the invoice will be the purchase order document and it is mandatory to have them in the system to enable the Reference Documents field. Once it is scoped, you should be able to see the Reference Documents field in the New Scanned Invoice screen.

Note: Under the Reference Documents field you can see a sub field Order ID and from here you need to select the relevant Purchase Order ID.
