Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Select invoice entry view
  3. Select All Returns to Be Invoiced 
  4. Enter the outbound delivery document created for the return
  5. The status shows invoiced instead of "Not Invoiced".
  6. Now select "New Credit Memo"
  7. No items are proposed by the system
  8. Or only few items are proposed for invoicing.


  1. The supplier invoice is created after the return to supplier and outbound delivery are created , hence when return to supplier(RTS) got created, there was basically no item for which credit can be claimed. So, now when you are trying to create the credit memo, system is not proposing any items and status is invoiced instead of not invoiced.
  2. The invoice is not created for all the items which is why the credit memo screen shows only few items.

You can check the creation dates of each follow up document in the purchase order(PO) item level document flow.


You can create credit memo  w.r.t to the PO and enter the items manually.


You can cancel the follow-up documents and create the documents in order:

PO->Delivery document-> supplier invoice-> Return to Supplier-> Outbound delivery-> Credit Memo.
