2939596 - Document or line item does not exist for invoice reference when editing Invoice Reference field

Document or line item does not exist for invoice reference

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to App Manage Supplier Line Item
  2. Edit the Invoice Reference field
  3. Save


For line items which are related to another line item , this field contains the number of the partner document.

In the standard system the field is used for the following:

• Credit memos that refer to a particular invoice item
• Subsequent invoices for an invoice item
• Partial payments for an invoice item
• Partial clearings of down payments

In the first two cases mentioned, the terms of payment terms of payment are copied from the cross-referenced invoice item into the item currently being processed. This ensures that items due on the same date are paid together by automatic payment.

A special rule applies to credit memos that contain a "V" in this field. The due date is determined in the same way as for an invoice. If the field is empty (containing neither a document number nor a "V") the due date is the baseline date for payment.


It's correct error message due to System Design.
