Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Receivables Work Center.
  2. Go to the Customer Accounts View.
  3. Search for Customer Account ABC (ABC stands for related Customer Account).
  4. Create a new charge / credit.
  5. Fill the document referring a related external reference.
  6. Checking that document created has external reference.

Then check Report below:

  1. Go to the Business Analytics Work Center.
  2. Go to the Design Reports.
  3. Open the Open VAT / Sales Tax Items report.
  4. Then, add external reference field.
  5. External reference is not available.


The reason why you are not able to see this field is that documents of type Receivables / Payables entry, which are charge or credits, are not available under Open VAT / Sales Tax Items report. The source document field would have to be used to identify the document.


This is current a system limitation. Report will show external reference when Type of external reference document is Invoices.
