3393440 - Pro Forma Invoice Split


You have noticed that when creating a Pro Forma Invoice from a Sales Order document, the system is splitting the Pro Forma Invoice into two different documents. 


SAP Business ByDesign 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Select the Sales Orders view.
  3. Search for document ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Sales Order).
  4. Select the document.
  5. Click Pro Forma Invoice button.

System splits the Pro Forma into two documents in the new pop-up screen. 


The reason the system is splitting the Pro Forma Invoice is because the Tax Country is different for some of the items. 
As Tax Country is a splitting criteria, the system will create two documents. 


This is the system expected behavior. 

In order to avoid this behavior, please make sure that all of the line items have the same Tax Country under the Sales Order document.
