Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Project Invoice Request view.
  3. Choose All Project Invoice Requests.
  4. Click on Advanced.
  5. Enter the Reference as Sales Order or Project.
  6. Click on Go button.

No details are appearing.

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Requests view.
  3. Choose All Invoice Requests.
  4. Enter Project ID.
  5. Click on Go button.
  6. You get the Invoice Request. 

All sales order seems to be linked to project task because

  1. Go to the items tab of Sales Order. 
  2. Go to Cost and Revenue Assignment.
  3. You will see Project Task appearing.


1.Sales Order item type is not Project Based as mentioned under Prerequisites of the Help Document, link is:


2.Milestone is not set to complete.


3.For every project it is allowed to have only one project invoice having status “In Preparation”. If there is another Project Invoice Request already added to the Project and this document has status In Preparation, the system will not create a new Project Invoice Request.


Solution for above causes respectively:

1.In new Sales Orders, change your project type to 'Service fixed price - Project' or a type that has 'Project' in it.

For existing Sales Orders, you cannot make changes to item type so either leave them as they are or cancel and create new Sales Orders.

2.Ensure the Mile stone is set to complete in the project

3.If you already have a Project Invoice Request with status "In Preparation", complete this first document and then create the new Project Invoice Request.
