2055260 - Account Assignment Missing Error While Posting Supplier Invoice


Error appears when you try to post the supplier invoice from SAP-ERP into SAP Business ByDesign system via IDOC integration, while accompanying purchase order does not exist in the SAP Business ByDesign system.

Error: Account assignment missing.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Select the relevant Invoice sent from External system.
  4. Select Post.


The IDOC integration of supplier invoice was built to work always with the purchase order. Since there is no purchase order existence in the Business ByDesign system, the accounting information was not taken. This is a new requirement and will be available in the future release of Business ByDesign.
