We are maintaining the Vendor Invoice No. in the Reference Column.

Our Client requirement is, the system should throw an error message when the same Vendor Invoice number is entered in the Reference column.

How can i control this.

      Hi venkata,

      You may refer to SAP note 305201 on Duplicate Invoice check.

      The standard SAP issues a warning message but if you want it to be an error, then you can try by chnaging the message control "F5-117" to Error from Warning.

    Hi Venkata,

    As per the SAP standard if vendor master is flaaged with douplicate invoice check then system will through an error if you enter same vendor, currency, company code, invoice document date and same reference number which you posted earlier.

    Use BTE 1110 if you want to validate duplicate invoice check according to particular field.

    Hi Venkata,

    You need to activate Double invoice check in master data . This will solve your purpose.Tt will check Reference document number too as one of the criteria .

    please press the F4 help to see the documentation on it for more details.
