EDI: Multiple reference to same purchase order item

Hello,

We have implemented the OSS Note 1090663 in order to solve the error: Multiple reference to the same purchase order item, but  this note not include also  the cases when the filed WEBRE (goods receipt-relevant invoice verification) is active.

Could you please tell me if  there  is another OSS Note  to cover also this case (WEBRE=X)?

Waiting your reply.

Thanks'!😊

    If it is an invoice coming from your own SD module in case of intercompany business, then you may want to follow the workaround given in OSS note 103051 - EDI: Multiple reference to same purchase order item


    What is the reason that you have the same item referenced multiple times in GR based invoice verification?

    • Hi Adriana,


      The cause of message M8321 'Document contains same order item more than once' is in the process, and the SAP Note 103051 has explained the reason and how to avoid it:
      "...
      In this case, the only solution is to deactivate the billing of the
      batch sub-items in SD Customizing and to calculate the main item only.
      ..."


      Based on the standard concept of MM-invoice EDI-process, system can't process the IDOC. In this case the best solution is to deactivate the billing of the batch sub-items in SD Customizing.


      If you would not accept the solution, you can consider the following solution:
      You can try to change the IDOC structure within MM-invoice EDI-process using user-exit FM EXIT_SAPLMRMH_011 to summarize/merge these IDOC segment's data for 2 or more invoice's items as for one invoice item, which refer to same PO/item and have same delivery note.
