RE:[sap-log-sd] Functional problem with Pro Forma invoices and Cash In Advance

Reply from Typewriter on Jan 15 at 10:53 PM
Hi Rory,

I wanted to configure, to create F2 billing type even if PGI was NOT completed. By this user would NOT have to create a proforma invoice.

Thus there would not be any "unreal" invoice numbers.

In VTFL, I copied the requirement at both header and item level from LF --> F8, TAN respectively.
With the above, F2 can be created even when PGI is not done.

NOTE - Please test how to create ONLY 1 accounting document OR only once posting to account should happen for the a value of a sales order. Currently - with testing - I notice that an F2 invoice can be created multiple times and each time an account posting is done. This is incorrect.

Also note please doNOT change the settings of F2 in VTFL (i.e. F2 <-- LF), please make a copy of F2 and then test rigorously.

Subject: Functional problem with Pro Forma invoices and Cash In Advance

We are having more problems using Pro Forma invoices as our international shipments increase, particularly to South America which has more rigid requirements. We have similar issues using a Pro Forma for Cash In Advance customers. The problem is that the invoice number on a Pro Forma is not the real, final invoice. It actually isn't much of anything except a reference back to our sales document. Sometimes an audit by the customs authorities back to the customer causes a mis-match, sometimes a payment is sent in reference to a Pro Forma, and other issues. Does anyone know of other solution in SAP? I believe we need something like an advance invoice, automatically blocked. Our normal invoices are generated at the time of the goods issue.
