Close Open billing documents not released to Accounting

Dear Gurus,

We have an issue where we need to update the open billing documents (More than 90 ) which are not released to accounting as CLOSED.

The billing documents were not released to accounting due to some Costing not done for the materials and they are open in


Client doesn't want to cancel the billing documents as these billing documents are more than 6 months old.

Is there an option in SAP ECC 6. 0 version like the V_MACO - Manual completion of Sales Documents and VL_COMPLETE - Completion of deliveries

for Closing the Open Billing documents.

    Take the logic from the program ZZCORRFB as suggested in the following note to change the posting status

    • Note 388327 - VFX3: Enhancement and conversion of the processing

    But please ensure that before carrying out the corrections as prescribed in the note, you have done enough regression testing, got approval from Business Finance

    Hi SR,

    Unless you release them to accounting Open billing status will not change to Complete

    so try to resolve the accounting error and then use VFX3 transaction to release all the Billing documents to accounting which will change the open status to complete for all your billing documents

    • Hi,

      Thanks for the reply.But in our case the Customer has created & given manual invoice   and  they don't want to release the above said documents to Accounting.

      The Billing value for the open billing document appears in the Credit master date of the Customer and the requirement is to update it as CLOSED and run the report to organize the Credit data.

    Hi SR K,

    Please change the status of VBRK-RFBSK from  " " to "E" or "C".in debugging .

    Error in Financials Interface

    A Billing document blocked for forwarding to FI

    B Posting document not created (account determ.error)

    C Posting document has been created

    D Billing document is not relevant for accounting

    E Billing document canceled

    a) In debugging mode, replace VBRK-RFBSK from ' ' to 'E' or 'C'


        Turn on the debugging mode (/h [enter] in the entry field in the

        top left corner of R/3 window) in transaction vf02 (change billing

        document). Then go to Header -> Details and manually change the

        value of vbrk-rfbsk from blank to 'E' (Billing document has been

        completed by cancellation). Remember to click the 'R'eplace button

        to update the field value.

    b) Via SE16, check again that VBRK-RFBSK is now 'E'


    Best Regards,
