MIRO posting two FI Documents in separate fiscal years

Hello Gurus,

We have a PO created under EUR. A MIRO invoice was posted in previous year under currency CZK and it created 2 FI documents with it. One regular FI document was created in the same period but then there was another document created this year with amount field showing '0' but local currency showing values for inventory variance in EUR. what is the reason behind this? Is there a way to rectify this situation and possibly post the documents in same period going forward?.

Thanks in advance for your help!.

    Hi Sagar,

    there are some reasons for that issue, i write most possible one

    the snote says:

    384313 - Several accounting documents for an MM invoice


    Several accounting documents exist for an MM invoice.

    Other Terms

    MR01, MR1M, MIRO, UMB, BSX, EIN, EKG, F5A167, duplicate, second, accounting document.

    Reason and Prerequisites

    In the following cases, several accounting documents are generated when an MM invoice verification document is posted:

    • You post an invoice relating to a PO without account assignment to the previous period (or you post directly to the material).The material is subject to moving average price control. In the previous period you have stock coverage; in the current period there is undercoverage (you are short of stock). An additional price change document is posted in the current period.
      Details on the logic are available in the online help under:


    Materials Management


    Material Price Change


    Posting to Prior Period

    Stock Undercoverage in Current Period

    At the time of invoice verification, the quantity of the material in stock is stored in the logistics document (Table RSEG):

    RSEG-VRKUM - Total stock in previous period;

    RSEG-LBKUM - Total stock in current period

    • Cross-company-code invoice

    In the case of cross-company-code invoices, a separate accounting document is posted for each company code.

    • Manual/total-based invoice reduction

    If an invoice is reduced, a credit memo is posted for the amount of the reduction in a separate accounting document.

    The documentation on manual invoice reduction is available under:

    Logistics Invoice Verification

    Invoice Verification in Dialog

    Invoice Items

    Process Invoice Items

    Entry of Quantity or Price Variances

    Example: Invoice reduction in the case of price


    Example: Invoice reduction in the case of quantity


    Example: Partial invoice reduction


    Invoice reduction: Correcting quantity or value

    Example: Invoice reduction Acceptance of price


    Example: Invoice reduction - Acceptance of quantity


    The documentation on total-based invoice reduction is in:

    Logistics Invoice Verification

    Posting Total-Based Differences

    Total-Based Invoice Reduction

    • Purchase account postings in separate document (as of Release 4.0B):

    If the purchase account management is active, you can specify at the following point in Customizing whether postings to the purchase account are to be made in a separate accounting document:

    Materials Management

    Valuation and Account Assignment

    Account Determination

    Account Determination Without Wizard

    Purchase Account Management

    Separate Accounting Document for Purchase Account


    • Additional accounting documents can also be generated if the material ledger is active.


    System design.

    please follow the snote
