While doing invoice you may see find entries under "All Deliveries To Be Invoiced" or "All Returns To Be Invoiced" for which you are unable to do invoicing as you get errors.

Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Supplier invoicing work center
- Go to Invoice entry view
- Choose either"All Deliveries To Be Invoiced" or "All Returns To Be Invoiced"
- Search for delivery or return respectively
- Click on New invoice or New credit memo respectively
By default these queries "All Deliveries To Be Invoiced" or "All Returns To Be Invoiced" were developed to show all Deliveries and all returns respectively.
So even if the delivery was already returned, you will still see the delivery under "All Deliveries To Be Invoiced" thus when you try creating invoice you will get exception that receipt is missing.
Also even if the delivery was not invoiced and was returned already with any follow up decision, you will still see the return under "All Returns to be invoiced" thus when you try creating create credit memo you will get error saying nothing available to be invoiced.
If you try creating Invoice for delivery ABC using "All Deliveries to be invoiced" then you will get exception"The system has created an exception because the receipt document is missing or invalid. Process the corresponding exception"
If you try creating credit memo for Return XYZ using "All Returns to be invoiced" then you will error "Nothing open for invoicing for purchase document XYZ"
This is current behavior in your system and also in our internal system and it looks correct technically.
What we think is that this delivery ABC and return XYZ should not come up under "all deliveries to be invoiced" and "All returns to be invoiced" cause they are not actually available for invoicing.
So this is the current system behavior and it has no harm cause we are raising appropriate errors if you proceed further.
