3354588 - Delivery type LO cannot be invoiced with billing type F8


When trying to create outbound delivery in node 'Create Outbound Delivery Without Order Reference' and generate proforma invoice, system gives error: "Delivery type LO cannot be invoiced with billing type F8".


SAP S/4HANA Cloud (All Versions)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to 'Create Billing Document" application
  2. Choose the delivery with type LO
  3. Click 'Create billing documents'
  4. The error message pops up


For delivery type LO it is not allowed to create an invoice with billing type F8, because the corresponding copy control settings are not maintained.


The pre-delivered copy control settings are set according to SAP best practices. Unfortunately new entries cannot be added to copy control settings. If a certain copy control setting is missing, it usually means the process is not supported. 

If the process is not available in best practices, but it is something necessary for your business, please contact your CSM or PE to raise a feature request if needed. See the detailed process in 2582556 - Request for new features in SAP S/4HANA Sales Cloud
