Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view 
  3. Select the relevant Supplier Invoice
  4. Select the button - Edit with original document
  5. No valid document found


Edit with Original Document feature is supported for supplier invoices created by Manual Data Entry, B2B messages, and External Application. However the attachment in the supplier invoice is of document type Standard Attachment and hence the feature does not work as you expected.


While creating supplier invoices from an external application, add the attachment of Document Type: Original Document and with this selection, you must be able to see the pdf file up on clicking Edit with original document button.
