3302164 - "Edit Payables Line Item" in Supplier Invoice


You have posted a Supplier Invoice ABC with a Payment Blocking Reason maintained in it, but you cannot remove it through the hyperlink "Edit Payables Line Item".


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Go to Invoices and Credit Memos view
  3. Search the posted Supplier Invoice ABC, open it and click View All
  4. Under General tab, Payment Information sub-tab, Payment Details, you can see the field "Payment Blocking Reason" has data maintained such as Complaint, Other Reason, Payment method changed or To be clarified with payer
  5. As you wish to remove this data, you click the hyperlink "Edit Payables Line Item" and remove the data from the field "Payment Block Reason"
  6. After saving, you can see that the data in field "Payment Blocking Reason" are still present on the invoice ABC


This is a limitation in the current version of Business ByDesign.

Once the payment blocked is removed and saved, the payment blocked is removed from the payment control, which allows the Supplier Invoice to be picked up in any suitable payment runs scheduled.

However, it will have no effect on the Supplier Invoice itself as the data will remain present in field "Payment Blocking Reason".
