Reproducing the Issue

Example: Posting goods receipt with a reference to a purchase order or of an invoice receipt with a reference to a purchase order


Extended Open Item Management is active for one or more of the goods receipt/invoice receipt (GR/IR) clearing accounts.

Extended Open Item Management uses summarization to extend the limit of 999 lines.  


System is working as Designed

With activation of Extended Open Item Management, when you post documents using the AC interface (from SD, Procure (MM) or other applications) the system automatically adds some fields to the summarization when the GR/IR clearing account is involved in posting.
These are: 

  • Item Text
  • Material Number
  • Item Number of Purchasing Document
  • Reference key for line item

Values for these fields are not available on the Entry View

Values for these fields can be displayed in the General Ledger View 

The General Ledger View is used for reporting purposes. In App Display Line Items In General Ledger View (App ID F2217), the value of the material number is displayed in field Product

There is no summarization for documents that are entered in FI

Without extended Open Item Management active, for any posting involving goods receipt/invoice receipt (GR/IR) clearing account, the above fields can have values on the Entry view however the limitation of 999 line items apply.
