SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier invoicing work center
  2. Go to  Invoice entry view
  3. Choose all orders to be invoiced
  4. Search and select the Purchase order
  5. Click on new invoice
  6. In the invoice you wanted to know how the quantity is determined


Invoice quantity =  Total delivered quantity - Total invoiced quantity

 if the above result in positive quantity then you will see the same as invoice quantity

 if the above result in negative quantity then you will see the invoice quantity is zero


Since we have cost distribution in supplier invoice and in general it should have reference to delivery thus system is designed accordingly as mentioned above to ensure it will only give the quantity that has a open delivery.

However you can enter the quantity as expected based on Purchase order quantity that is Invoice quantity= Total Purchase order quantity- total invoiced quantity
