2660003 - Supplier Invoice Remians in Status 'Delayed Verification in Process'

Symptom

After the Supplier invoice is posted it gets in to status Delayed Verification in Process, but you expect it to change to the status Posted after some time (after a couple of hours).

Note:The system takes time to link all deliveries and hence based on the number of Deliveries in the invoice system, it will need more time.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Search for the respective Supplier invoice.

 The Invoice is in status Delayed Verification in Process for a long time.

Cause

The related documents like Purchase orders or Deliveries were locked (accessed by someone else) at that time.

Note: The system retries to post 7 times with some interval. Since in your case even the documents were locked even during the retry, the invoice(s) remain in this status.

Resolution

Please do a Dummy-change in the Invoice, as mentioned below:

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Search for the respective Supplier invoice.
  4. Select it and click on Edit.
  5. Remove the external document ID.
  6. Click on the Check button.
  7. Enter the External document ID.
  8. Click on the Check button again.
  9. Once done you can click the Post Button.
