2276585 - While Creating A Customer Invoice Or Project Invoice Request You Want To Update The Bill To Address.


You want to change the Bill-To-Address while creating Customer Invoice or Project Invoice Request but system is not updating the same though you have changed the Address in relevant Account Master Data correctly. The bill-to address will be taken from the master data; otherwise, it will be taken from the sales order if changed in the relevant document.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing Workcenter.
  2. Go to Project Invoicing View.
  3. Choose Sales Orders Sub View.
  4. In the field Show, choose All Orders using drop down and search for the relevant Order ID with Account:ABC.
  5. Select the relevant Sales Order ID and choose option New selecting Manual Project Invoice Request or Automatic Project Invoice Request.
  6. Now system will create the Project Invoice Request against the Order ID with Account :ABC.
  7. Here when you check the Bill-To-Address in New Project Invoice Request ID, you find that Address is not updated as per Account's Address which you have changed.

  4. In the Scoping step of the project, ensure that Customer Invoicing is selected within Sales.
  5. In the Questions step, expand the Sales scoping element.
  6. Select Customer Invoicing then select Miscellaneous Invoicing.
