Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the Sales Order workcenter.
  2. Select the Sales Order view.
  3. Open any sales order.
  4. Navigate to the items tab.
  5. The Bill-To Party is always greyed out.


  • You have scoped the address redetermination for Bill-To in Sales Documents in the Scoping Questions.
  • This is the expected system behaviour.


  1. Navigate to the Business Configuration Workcenter.
  2. Select the Implementation Projects view.
  3. View Active Scope.
  4. Navigate to 4. Questions.
  5. Open Sales->Customer Invoicing->Miscellaneous Invoicing->Miscellaneous Invoicing.
  6. You will find question "Do you want to redetermine the address of the Bill-To Party from the master data at the time of invoice creation?".
  • Once this question is scoped, you are not able to manually change the bill-to party in sales documents anymore, including customer invoicing.
  • The redetermination does not redetermine the party itself, but only the entered details in the party master data for the Bill-To address.
  • If you want to adjust the Bill-To Party manually, unscope this question.
