Inter company AP document(with tax) not created via EDI

Hi All,

Need your assistance to fix a issue in Inter-company posting.

The issue is system is not posting AP Invoices in inter-company while AR document is posted via EDI.

Process log in Output type RD04 is as

Object 1001112354

Output type: Invoice Receipt MM

Processing log for program RSNASTED routine EDI_PROCESSING

IDoc '0000000028318511' added

EDI: Message was saved and processed as inbound IDoc

When we check the Idoc thro’ WE02 it has a message as “Batch input session IV9999990129 was created”

Technical details are as shown below

Direction 2    Inbox

Current Status 53

Basic type INVOIC01


Message Type INVOIC

Partner No. 9999990129

  1. Partn.Type LI

Port A000000006

So we have to process the BDC session manually (key posting key, GL Code & Tax code).

This issue occurs only when the tax are involved in Intercompany. AR document is created with tax amount but not the AP document (which has to be processed manually).

We know that the Tax GL has not been maintained for AP document, but not sure where to update the G/L code, so that the system post Intercompany AP document automatically via EDI.

Appreciate your time &assistance.


Rod Moore.

    Check in t.code OBCD for tax code assignments.

      We have the tax code(Input Tax) in place in OBCD, but still the system is not creating the Inter-Company AP document. we have to manually run the BDC to process the document by updating  tax amount(i.e system is not calculating the tax amount automatically).

      Also after manual process of BDC session,system post two line items for Tax amount.

      Is there any config is missing.

      Thanks for your reply

    Rod:  Check your settings in OBCB - FI-EDI: G/L Accounts.  Take a look at OSS 150120 it has pretty good steps to setup inbound EDI (it is for external inbound, but most of the settings are the same).  There is a similar note for setting up Intercompany EDI INVOIC but I can't find it at the moment.  you might look in OSS for it.

    • Rod - have a look at OSS note 137686 - ALE_INVOIC01: internal allocation customizing in FI and see if that helps.  It goes thru the steps for intercompany EDI.

      Also have a look at the IDOC created and see what error message it gives under the Status Records segment.  Sometimes this tells you what you are missing as well.  The entries in OBCD are very picky, but where you are keying in tax amounts, sounds like another setting is missing somewhere.

      Have a look at this as well: in OBCE, If you set the flag 'Calculate tax' to recalculate the tax of FI based on the tax information transferred in the IDOC, the flag 'Calculate taxes on net amount' must be set in the user options (Transaction FB00) of the user processing the IDocs.

      Good Luck!
