Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Go to Invoices and Credit Memos view
  3. Select the relevant Supplier invoice
  4. You can see the status as Posted and created by field is blank


The Supplier invoice was created through ERS run and hence the created by field is blank. The reason why the invoice was created via ERS run because, it has a reference to the purchase order. And if you open the items tab of purchase order under basic data sub tab you can see that check box, Evaluated Receipt Settlement is selected. Hence invoice got created via ERS run.


This is an expected behaviour. If you do not want system to create and post invoices automatically via ERS run, you can remove the check box Evaluated Receipt Settlement in the corresponding purchase order or in the supplier master data.
