SAP Business By Design

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Analytics work center
  2. Select view Design Reports
  3. Open the standard report "Monitoring Invoices"
  4. Open the respective supplier invoice associated with the third party sales order
  5. The column for sales order appear as # in the report 


The supplier invoice is assigned to reference purchase order item.

Sales order ID is displayed as # for some supplier invoices because it is referring purchase order in the cost distribution and not delivery document , this is the reason system has not fetched the sales order data because supplier invoice is not created with reference to inbound delivery which has the sales order reference.

You can see in this path: open the supplier invoice->navigate to Items tab --> Cost Distribution ---> Reference Item is purchase order

If supplier invoice is created with respect to inbound delivery , then it will fetch the sales order data as expected.


Go to supplier invoicing work center, select invoice entry and filter for "all deliveries to be invoiced" option and click on New invoice and go to items tab in cost distribution, check if the reference is showing inbound delivery, then it will fetch the sales order details in report.
