Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Open the desired Supplier Invoice.
  4. Go to Items tab.
  5. Go to Cost Distribution subtab.
  6. See the system is considering entries for which the Service Period is bigger than the Invoicing Period.

For instance: Invoicing Period: May 1st to May 31st while the Service Period January 1st to December 31st.


This is the expected system behavior.

The system will consider as valid reference documents, if their Service Periods are inside the Invoicing Period, even if the Service Period is bigger than the selected Invoicing Period.


Expected system behavior.
