2457051 - Error Message "Invoices not released; Approvals cannot be scoped" While Merging a Change Project


You finish the scoping of your implementation project, or you merge a change project. But this fails with below error message:

Invoices not released; Approvals cannot be scoped


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select Implementations Projects view.
  3. Select the Change Project and select Open Activity List button
  4. Go to Go Live tab
  5. Open the Merge activity and start the merge


The reason for this error is the attempt to scope the question Do you want to set up approval process for manual customer invoices and credit memos?, although one or more open invoices exist in the system.


Before you scope this question, you need to complete all the Manual invoices and Credit Memos created in the system. This can be verified in Customer Invoicing work center, Invoice Documents view.
