Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Select the Invoice Entry view.
  3. Select a PO line and click New Invoice.
  4. From the new invoice, go to Items tab and Coat Distribution sub-tab.
  5. You can see that the Account Assignment information does not display bellow Cost Distribution Details.
  6. Also, if you open the PO used to create this SIV, under Items tab, you will also see that the Account Assignment sub-tab does not display.


 The product used in your PO is under the process type To-Stock.


  • When you create a supplier invoice for a To-Stock Purchase Order, the system will fetch the account assignment details from the product master data.
  • It is the same for purchase order as well as you do not see the Account Assignment tab in To-Stock orders.
  • In this case, system will fetch the costs from respective account determination groups which are mapped in product master data and these accounts are mapped to general ledger accounts in financials.
  • Hence you do not see the Account Assignment tab for an invoice which has To-Stock items.
  • This is the standard system behavior.
