Cause

The price variance exception is created if the calculated average price of invoices already posted and current invoice is higher than the price of the referenced purchasing document. The invoice item is never checked alone against the purchase order item but always together with all other invoice items that have been posted with reference to this purchase order item. Additionally the average price variance exception would be created also due to the limitation of decimal places in the currency which is used in the purchasing document.

You have to accept the price varinace exception and post the supplier invoice document.

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
