2845516 - No Template Code in the Predefined Output Determination Rule Error on Customer Invoice

Symptom

When you try to release a Customer Invoice, the system displays an error: There's no template code in the predefined output determination rule.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Open Customer Invoice ABC (ABC Represents the Customer Invoice ID).
  4. Click on the Release button.

You see the error: There's no template code in the predefined output determination rule.

Cause

This error is shown when the system cannot find a valid Output Determination Rule for Customer Invoice which fits the information maintained in this document.

Resolution

To fix this, you need to create a rule that fits the information maintained in the Customer Invoice (Either Bill-To, Seller/Invoicing Unit or Business Document type).

  1. Go to the Application and User Management work center.
  2. Go to the Form Template Selection view.
  3. Show Rules For: Customer Invoice.
  4. Click on the New button.
  5. Maintain the desired information.

As a general tip, the system checks the rules created from top to bottom, so you can maintain a generic rule at the bottom with just the desired Form Template Code and Business Document as Invoice in order to have a fallback rule and avoid this error.
