You have created extension field in Purchase Order and extended it to Supplier invoice using following extension scenarios:
Purchase Order - General Information to Supplier Invoice Request - General Information
Supplier Invoice Request - General Information to Supplier Invoice - General Information
The extension field value is visible in few supplier invoices but missing in few others.
SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center
- Select Purchase Orders view
- Select View All
- Under General tab, you have created an extension field
- Now go to document flow and open the follow-up supplier invoice
- The field value is missing in the supplier invoice General tab
- However, for few purchase orders, the follow-up invoice contains the respective value.
The extension field is updated in the follow-up supplier invoice document in few cases because you have created the invoice with respect to the purchase order.
That means when you create from Invoice entry->"all orders to be invoiced", then the value will show in the supplier invoice.
On the other hand, if you create the invoice with respect to delivery document, i.e. from the view " all deliveries to be invoiced", then the field will not be populated.
Extension field value from purchase order general information will only be passed to invoice from purchase orders and not from delivery. Currently, there is no extension scenario supporting that.
Hence, only if the invoice is created directly with respect to purchase order, then the value will get populated.
This is a current limitation and if you want this extension scenario to work for inbound delivery as well, you can post in customer influence forum as a new requirement: https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/campaign/886.
