Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier invoicing work center
  2. Go to invoice entry view
  3. Show All orders to be invoiced
  4. Select the relevant order and click on New invoice button
  5. In case there are more than 100 GSA's / a single GSA with many individual materials you will see that a dialog box pops up
  6. If you choose deliveries more than 100 / a single GSA with more than 100 individual materials, then you will have only one option to click on New Invoice with Delayed Verification


When you create an invoice with Delayed Verification, the assignment of GSA references and Account assignment details happens only during the posting of Invoice.

This was mainly done to avoid time system takes for assignment of GSA references and Account assignment in case of huge number of GSA’s, hence the Reference will appear as Purchase order and no Account Assignment details appear in cost distribution tab of invoice.


This is expected   and current system behavior.

However, as a workaround you may follow below steps to avoid this situation.

  1. Go to Supplier invoicing work center
  2. Go to invoice entry view
  3. Show "All deliveries to be invoiced"
  4. Then select all goods receipts and click on New invoice button

 Also, if you still think that based on Purchase orders appearing in reference item column (when you use the delayed verification under Cost

distribution sub tab in Invoice) the Account assignment details has to be Pulled, Kindly put this in ideas forum mentioning the business use  case so that

based on the votes received our developers can consider for developing it in future releases.
