Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the Customer Invoicing workcenter.
  2. Select the Invoice Request View.
  3. Select Invoice Requests ABC and DEF (ABC and DEF represent invoice request IDs).
  4. Click Invoice.
  5. The opening Invoice shows two invoices.
  6. When checking for Split Criteria, you see differences in field GLO_JP_CLOSING_DATE.


  • The field GLO_JP_CLOSING_DATE refers to the Closing Date, that can be used, when Japan is scoped.
  • Field value is determined from the master data set up of the respective Buyer party.
  • In the master data setup, you can select a pattern, which is maintained in the Fine Tuning activity "Invoice Summary Processing Japan".
  • This field is passed on header level and is a split criteria.


  • It is not possible to invoice sales documents with different entries for GLO_JP_CLOSING_DATE.
  • This can occur when you change the pattern that is currently being used.
  • If there are open sales documents the new value is updated to newly processed line items.
  • Already processed line items keep the old value.
  • This results in an invoice split.
  • To resolve the invoice split, you need to re-create the sales scenario.
