  7. In the drop-down list of the field Document Type the option All Documents is not available. 

Cause

The option Document Type All Documents is only available for the country Italy due to legal requirements. For all other countries it was removed in one of the previous upgrades. The option to choose All Documents for the Document Type is not desired by the SAP system. It is advised to maintain a numbering rules for the individual document types (such as Credit memo, Down Payment Request, Invoice etc.) This is the reason this option is no longer available.
