3126133 - Billing split due to different Business Partner Address information - S/4HANA Cloud


Unexpected billing split occurs in Create Billing documents app.

When selecting two Billing documents in Manage Billing Documents app, split analysis show different BP addresses. 

The split analysis shows that the split occured due to different partner data (address).



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create Billing Document app.
  2. Select two reference documents. Two billing documents get created, on billing split analysis, different information at BP Address is displayed.


  1. Open Manage Billing Documents app.
  2. Select both documents and click 'Split Analysis' button.


This is system behavior. If an address gets entered manually then the system generates an address number starting with 9xxxxxxxxx.The system does not check whether the manual addresses are identical or not, it just simply checks the address numbers itself. Since it is not identical a split happens.


In order to avoid splits, such manual changes should not be done as with each change a new address number is assigned which later on leads to the split.
