Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Create invoice without purchase order
  3. You have not entered quantity and net price
  4. Select Post
  5. Invoice gets posted


In your invoice, you have entered a net amount of say X currency, so system is allowing to post the invoice.

However, if you enter price, then quantity is must, because net price calculation is done only with respect to quantity.

You can create an invoice with just net amount.

But if you do not enter any of these details, then the system will throw following exception: "Enter either the gross/net amount, or the quantity and the price."


This is the standard system behavior.

Net Amount is allowed because in some cases, users may create invoice for items such as freight charges where the quantity is not mentioned, because it is an additional cost e.g. customs duty invoice.
