Is there a way to select which address is used in the Billing Document


This is a new feature request.


In Billing document, the address cannot be changed even if a new address is maintained in Business Partner. The workaround for the Billing Document is as below: 

  1. Cancel existing Billing Document
  2. Change the address in Sales Order
  3. Re-create the Billing Document to get the new address from Sales Order
