Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Inventory Valuation work center. 
  2. Open the GR/IR Clearing view.
  3. Select the run XXX (XXX is the GR/IR Clearing Run ID).
  4. Open the Log Result.
  5. Check the Processed Successfully tab.
  6. The purchase order item you are looking for is missing. 


Purchase Orders items are not being considered by the GR/IR clearing run when no delivery or invoice relevant transactions have occurred for the item since the last run. Or, if the item is not marked for final clearing.

By default, this flag is automatically set when the purchase order item is fully delivered and fully invoiced. Should an item to be finished before it has been fully delivered or invoiced, the item can be manually marked for final clearing.

You can manually mark for final clearing when:

  • An item is not completed delivered or invoiced.
  • No further transactions are expected for the item.


  1. Go to the  Inventory Valuation work center. 
  2. Go to the Master Data view.
  3. Go to the Purchasing Document Items subview.
  4. Show All Purchase Order Items.
  5. Find the respective purchase order item and select item. 
  6. Choose the Final Clearing button and select Mark. 
  7. Enter the final clearing date. 

The item will be included in the next GR/IR Clearing Run, provided its final clearing date is in the accounting period selected for the run.
