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

Reply from Eklavya on Jan 17 at 9:45 AM
Hi Typewriter,

The above explanation is fine, but I would like to know what conclusion can we come to?

Is it that:

1. Commercial invoice should be allowed to be done at any time (before and after PGI)
2. Is this the only workaround available or do you think any other way can also be looked at

One other question which I would like to ask is:

How can we create multiple invoices and then limit the creation of accounting document to only one ?

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.
