2674459 - Header wont be transferred while invoicing EBDR

Symptom

When you invoice an external billing document request the header text won't be transported to the invoice header. Instead those texts appear at invoice item level.

Environment

  • Sales and Distribution (SD)
  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud from version 1711 on
  • SAP S/4HANA from version 1809 on

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access the FIORI Launchpad with a user role, that allows the user to create an EBDR. For example SAP_BR_BILLING_CLERK.
  2. Open the app "Create Billing Document Request" and create an EBDR with a header text
  3. Open the app "Create Billing Documents" and look for the created EBDR
  4. Mark that object in the table and click on "Create"

This process is just an example. You can create billing document request in various ways.

Cause

  • The functionality works as designed
  • The "Billing Info for Customer" is not transferred to BillingHeader but to the Items of the Billing Document
  • This is needed as in case of convergent billing the system cannot transfer all texts to Billing Document Header

Resolution

  • If you still want to change that behaviour, you can change the default text flow using the configuration item "Text Determination" in app "Configure Your Solution"
  • In the configuration step "Set up Text Determination for Billing Header" you can change the Access Sequence 600 and add the flow from Sales Document Header to Billing Document Header
  • The configuration should look like that:
SequenzNumber Text object Text Object Description ID ID Description Partner Function All Languages Language Partner Function Language Pur.Org.Language Condition
10 VBBK Sales Header texts TX06 Billing Infor for Customer CHECK 1
20 KNVV Customer texts, sales TX06 Billing Infor for Customer BP CHECK 0
30 KNA1 Central customer texts TX06 Billing Infor for Customer BP CHECK 0
40 KNVV Customer texts, sales TX06 Billing Infor for Customer SP CHECK 0
50 KNA1 Central customer texts TX06 Billing Infor for Customer SP CHECK 0
61 KNA1 Central customer texts TX06 Billing Infor for Customer SP CHECK 0
