Freight vendor not determined during MIRO

Hello Friends,

When I try to post Freight invoice with MIRO, system is showing error "M8278-Invoicing party is different from PO party".

After checked the SAP Note I thought of changing the error message to warning message (OMRM) but

It is working properly in Quality system without OMRM config but showing error only in production system..

Please share your expertise,

    Hi VSN,

    Check the option you have selected for the vendor in GR for the condition type in M/06 in both the system?

    Hello Friends,

    additional information

    We have activated Partner function for vendors



    system message

    Different invoicing party 30001523 planned for del. costs item in PO

    Message no. M8287


    You entered an invoice for delivery costs.

    In a delivery costs item for purchase order 4500281660, the invoicing party
    is 30001523. You are now posting the invoice to 0060028882. This can be for one
    of two reasons:

    • You entered 4500281660 in the field Purchase order, and 0060028882
      in the field Invoicing party.

    • You entered a multiple allocation. The first item refers to a purchase order
      with invoicing party 0060028882. Another item refers to purchase order
      4500281660. The system copies the invoicing party from the first delivery costs
      item to all items, in this case 0060028882.


    The category of this message can be changed in Customizing for Invoice
    Verification. This means that you can receive a message as an error message even
    though it is defined as a warning message in the standard system.
    following documentation deals with the case applicable to the standard system


    Check your entries and make any necessary corrections.

    If you want to allow delivery costs with different invoicing parties to be
    selected, change the system message to W in Customizing. To do this, you
    work through the step Define Attributes of System Messages in the
    Implementation Guide for Invoice Verification.

    The message is set as an error message in the standard system. In this case,
    the delivery costs are not selected.

    • I do think the message is quite clear. This is noting about partner function. This message is about freight vendor which is assigned in condition tab with condition type.

      if you are not changing the vendor manually in MIRO, then you must be posting more than one line item which is containing multiple vendors.

      Check all the line item's (which is showing in MIRO) condition tab from ME23N.

      Please read the OSS note for more details 393431 - MIRO - Vendor

    Hello Friends,

    Quality is working; production is not working it is clear from this - There is no customization error

    In this transaction error happens, user changed the data at the time of MIRO

    that was the reason for error

    Thanks for all your help

    Hello Friends,

    I checked with the client; they did as follows:


    They maintained partner function VN-Vendor for freight but no corresponding PI partner function


    1. They done PO+GR, when they try to do MIRO, system shows error since there is no corresponding PI for the Freight vendor

    2. They requested Logistics team to change PO with different vendor

    Logistic team created another Freight vendor and changed the PO with the new Freight vendor


    1. When we try to post MIRO for planned delivery cost, system is showing material vendor and freight vendor in pop-up screen (but name of the freight vendor is not displayed only code, I think data is not properly saved or not at all saved).

    but when we select freight vendor system is showing PO vendor is different and showing error

    2. If we change the vendor in MIRO header, system is allowing to post provided we need to remove the material vendor first.

    I need to do further testing tomorrow

    Friends with this background can anyone share your expertise?

    Thanks and regards
