Final Invoice field to be set automatically


  • In contrast to the Delivery Completed indicator, the final invoice indicator is not set automatically for purchase order or invoice documents: it can only be set manually.
  • Additionally, Final Invoice flag does not prevent postings of further invoices after it is set. Considering this, this flag is not set automatically and has no relation with goods receipt postings.


There is no standard solution as system is working as designed and it can only be set manually due to the above reason.
