2592862 - Supplier Invoice Document Number for Italian Companies

Symptom

The Supplier Invoice Document Number for Italian companies is generated as 1, 2, etc... instead of the rule maintained under Document Numbering Format for Supplier Invoice under Business Configuration work center

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Select Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Search for the document XX (XX refers to invoice ID searched).

Cause

In order to overcome the challenges faced by the end users like sequential approving, sequential posting of the supplier invoice, cancellation of the document, a recent development is done on the feature.

A document number is generated when the document is saved for the first time. Once the legal document ID is generated for Italian Companies, they must be posted or approved in the sequential way.

Resolution

After the recent development, when the user clicks on Save button for the Supplier Invoice of Italian company, there is a global document ID generated. This is not the Legal ID. The Legal Document ID will be generated only when the invoice is posted successfully. The legal ID is displayed on the General tab with the field name Sequential Document Number.

Note: The Sequential Document Number follows the same rule maintained under Document Numbering Format for Supplier Invoice under Business Configuration work center.
