SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Customer Return Scenario.
  2. Create a Service Order to process the Customer Return.
  3. Open the Customer Return and navigate to Items Tab.
  4. You do not see a Button above the Line Item Table with Assign Reference.


  • You have created a wrong Inbound Delivery Note for this Customer Return Scenario.
  • You have selected Follow-Up Activity: Add to Stock, but you need to select Follow-Up Activity: Repair at Own Service Center.


  1. Cancel the previously created Customer Return (follow KBA 1582366).
  2. Go to the Inbound Logistic work center.
  3. Create a New Customer Return Inbound Delivery Note.
  4. Navigate to Items Tab.
  5. Select Follow-Up Activity Repair at Own Service Center.
  6. Proceed with the Customer Return process.

You will find that the newly created Customer Return will have the Assign Reference Button as expected.
