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

Hi Typewriter,

But I think that would be totally wrong if you check it in business perspective. F2 is meant to be a commercial invoice and is meant to be created only after the goods/services are received by the customer. If the user wants any bill before that then we can give him sample invoice (proforma). The above scenario will actually interrupt/hinder the original business process.

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.
