Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Select Invoice Entry view
  3. Select option " All Returns to be Invoiced" from the drop-down
  4. Search with the Return ID
  5. No documents are displayed.
  6. Go to advanced filter
  7. Search with the return ID-> No records found


Once the return to supplier(RTS) is created, the system sends a message to Outbound Delivery Processing, this makes the RTS available in Delivery Proposals to create the Return To Supplier Outbound Delivery.

It's really only when the associated Outbound Delivery gets released that the Supplier Invoice Request (SIR) is created in backend which makes it available for invoicing, making it visible in the Invoice Entry Screen. Hence, Invoicing is basically done with respect to delivery document.

The invoice Entry Screen is based on the supplier invoice request which is based off the Outbound Delivery.

This means that the supplier invoice request's base document ID will be the "Return to Supplier Delivery ID", not the Return to Supplier itself.


Hence, the return filter works based on the relevant outbound delivery ID.
