1763835 - How to Remove Down Payment Request from Supplier Invoice

Symptom

You create a new supplier invoice and it automatically references down payment requests for the supplier. You cannot find a way to remove these references if they are not relevant.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Supplier Invoicing.
  2. Go to the view Invoices and Credit Memos.
  3. Mark the relevant invoice and choose Edit.
  4. Under the section Reference Documents, you find the references to the down payment requests.
  5. These references are read-only and you cannot suppress them.

Cause

This is the desired behavior. These references are automatically fetched in order to avoid a manual mistake where down payments are omitted. However these references can still be manually removed.

Resolution

  1. Go to the work center Supplier Invoicing.
  2. Go to the view Invoices and Credit Memos.
  3. Mark the relevant invoice and choose Edit.
  4. Select View All in the top right corner.
  5. In the tab General, go to the sub-tab Payment Information, then go to the sub-tab Down Payments.
  6. Mark the relevant down payment and chose Remove.
