2955947 - The status of a sales order is 'Completed' although the subsequent document is still open - SAP S/4HANA Cloud


An outbound delivery is being created with reference to a sales order. When opening up the document flow, the status of the standard order is 'Completed' even though the following delivery is not posted.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app 'Create Sales Orders' and create a sales order.
  2. Create an outbound delivery with reference to this order.
  3. Open up the document flow, finding the status of the sales order is 'Completed' even though the following delivery is not posted.


This is standard design.

The overall status of a sales order will be set as 'Completed' if all the items are referenced by a subsequent outbound delivery. And it has nothing to do with the status of the subsequent document.
