Reproducing the Issue
1. Go to Supplier Invoice work center
2. Go to Invoices and Credit Memos view
3. Search for Respective Supplier Invoice
4. Go to Exceptions tab
You will see the Exception
5.Go to Items tab
6.Navigate to cost distribution Tab
Where you will see two entries, one with reference item but no quantity and other no reference item but has quantity.
In any Inter company scenario(where Purchase order has created a sales order automatically), we expect that delivery received from sales order has to be the reference for the inbound delivery created. Thus we expect " Delivery notification ID" field in inbound delivery same as outbound delivery ID that was created for the Sales order.
Since you create Inbound delivery or GSR manually you must ensure to create them properly other wise this exception is expected to appear.
This is applicable for any scenario where Intercompany scenario is part of it. for example
Sales order-> Purchase order->sales order
Purchase order->Sales order->Purchase order
Sales order-> Purchase order->sales order->Purchase order
Purchase order->Sales order->Purchase order->sales order
For the existing effected Supplier invoices:
Go to items tab
Go to cost and distribution tab
Ensure quantity exists against the Inbound delivery ID under reference Item column
Click on Add open items button and then click on check button then ensure quantity exists against the Inbound delivery ID under reference Item column.
Ensure you remove the empty rows if any that has no quantity or reference item as missing.
To avoid this issue in future while creating Inbound delivery or GSR manually:
while creating manual Inbound delivery or Third party inbound delivery for the PO, ensure to enter value in " Delivery notification ID" field same as outbound delivery ID that was created for the Sales order. .
