Cannot combine invoice requests to create a single customer invoice.
SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Customer Invoicing workcenter.
- Go to the Invoice Requests view.
- Show All Documents.
- Select invoice request ABC and DEF (ABC & DEF represents the ID of the outbound delivery for which invoice requests have been created).
- Select the Follow-Up - Advance Creation button.
- Enter the required details and Finish the creation of invoice.
- Two separate invoices have created even though no split criteria is applicable for the invoice requests.
The reason for the invoice split is given by the extension field XYZ in the sales order. (XYZ represents the ID of the extnesion field)
The extension flow for this attribute is defined that the field is part of the customer invoice header. Thee extension field is not filled with different value in sales orders.
You can follow the workaround below to avoid the split of the invoice:
- Restrict the the extension field XYZ only to Sales Order and not define it for the Invoice.
- Remove the extension field from the sales order screen and manually maintain the value in the Additional Information field of the sales order.
