3300017 - Message FARR_RAI771 while processing RAI


Different CO object numbers in predecessor chain (SDOI/XXX/acct.principle XX)

Message no. FARR_RAI771

Two possible scenarios:

1. Order and Return

When an return is created, RAR will get a new order RAI. This RAI has the "predecessor" fields filled (PREDOC_ID of return RAI contains the SRCDOC_ID of the order RAI). RAR will create only one POB for order and return RAI during RAI processing. All values are aggregated (when quantity of the order is 10 and quantity of the return is -2, the quantity of the POB is 8).

There are some restrictions. Some attributes of order and return must me identical in such case - like company code, currency, quantity unit, value relevant flag, COOBJNR, simplified invoice flag).

COOBJNR must be identical for order and return because in FARR_D_POB we have only one COOBJNR. Otherwise, we are not able to manage the percentage of competition correctly and assign them to the POB properly.

2. Credit memo

When a credit memo is created, RAR will get a new invoice RAI. No new order RAI is usually created. It means, the attributes of POB are not affected. The POB still contains the COOBJNR of the original order.
