SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project management work center
  2.  Go to Project invoice request view
  3.  Search and select relevant  Invoice request
  4.  You will see that check mark against the scheduled invoice is checked

 But the status of invoice is  Inpreparation


If there are some expenses which are marked as “written-off” or which are deferred (also if some expense is written-off only partially) they cannot be assigned to any PIR item. Then automatic release is rejected because the user must have possibility to check whether these special expenses (or parts of expenses) should be really assigned to this PIR.


So you will have to manually release such Project invoice requests


Scheduled project invoice request not released, Scheduled project invoice request still in status In preparation , KBA , SRD-PRO-INV , Projects Customer Invoicing , Problem
