Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoice and Credit Memos
  2. Select view: Invoice Entry
  3. Search for the purchase order with limit item
  4. Here you can see the product description in the OWL screen
  5. Now Select New Invoice
  6. The product description field is empty


The supplier invoice expects the actual items to be invoiced from the delivery document i.e. goods and service receipt for limit items so that they are posted to the correct ledgers and before the delivery documents are created, these actual items for limit purchase order are not known.


For limit items, please create a delivery document and then create invoice with reference to the delivery document. Then the number of goods receipt items will correspond to the items of the invoice.
