3061955 - Unable to invoice a Delivery or a Return or why are they appearing as open for invoicing

Symptom

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.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier invoicing work center
  2. Go to Invoice entry view
  3. Choose either"All Deliveries To Be Invoiced" or  "All Returns To Be Invoiced"
  4. Search for  delivery or  return respectively
  5. Click on New invoice or  New credit memo respectively

Cause

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 Inbound delivery was already returned, you will still see the  inbound delivery under "All Deliveries to Be Invoiced" thus when you try creating invoice you will get exception that receipt is missing.

or

even if the Inbound delivery was not invoiced and was returned with out bound delivery already with any follow up decision as credit memo, you will still see the  Supplier 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.

Resolution

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.”

or

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, 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.
