1641615 - System Throws Error Message: The receipt document is missing or invalid When a Supplier Invoice is Posted Even Though a Goods Receipt is Created


You are unable to post Supplier invoice created with reference to purchase order due to error message: The receipt document is missing or invalid. To post the document,either
go to the Exceptions tab and allow post without receipt document or wait until the receipt document has been posted and then post the
document. Even though Goods and Services Receipt is created already.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Select  Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Select the invoice ABC and select Edit button.
  4. Select Post button.


There is already an invoice created for all the line items(for entire quantity) of purchase order with respect to Goods and Services Receipt .So when you try to create a new invoice for the same items of purchase order(for extra quantity not maintained in the purchase order) for which there is no delivery done, system raises the exception.


You can select the button Allow Post without Receipt Document in the Exceptions tab of supplier invoice to post the supplier invoice.
