3107030 - Why wrong supplier is determined in Scanned invoice?


You have exact name and address of supplier appearing in the PDF but still wrong supplier is determined in the invoice or review screen


SAP Business ByDesign


1.Both Supplier name and supplier address is considered to determine the Supplier in scanning invoice.

 2.when only one address exist in supplier master data, then system will check it to compare with PDF address to determine the Supplier.

 3. when there are multiple address in master data then system will choose randomly one of  the address to compare with PDF address to determine Supplier.

 since they don't match system searched for others suppliers to see if their address matches at least little thus other supplier is determined.


Unfortunately developers cannot fix this issue due to technical limitations currently.
