Problem Creating CreditMemo Through SDK

Hi All,

In SAP 9.0 PL 5 I have created an order and based on that order I have created delivery, Payment and Invoice. Now when I am trying to add Credit Memo for created invoice Via SDK it is giving the below error:

Quantity cannot exceed the quantity in the base document.

I am linking the document and line correctly and the BaseLine, BaseEntry, and BaseType match the ones on the source document. Also, the quantity is not more then on the source document.

Please Help me give suggestion.


Here's my code:

ReturnMat = oCompany.GetBusinessObject(SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oCreditNotes)

ReturnMat.Series = SAPSerie

ReturnMat.CardCode = DTShipper.Rows(0).Item("Customer")

ReturnMat.Comments = Shipper.ToString() & " " & Note.ToString()

For x As Int32 = 0 To DTShipper.Rows.Count - 1

If x > 0 Then ReturnMat.Lines.Add()

ReturnMat.Lines.BaseEntry = DTShipper.Rows(x).Item("InvoiceDocEntry")

ReturnMat.Lines.BaseType = SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oInvoices

ReturnMat.Lines.BaseLine = DTShipper.Rows(x).Item("LineNum")


ReturnMat.Lines.Quantity = DTShipper.Rows(x).Item("SAPQuantity")



ReturnMat.Lines.BatchNumbers.BatchNumber = DTShipper.Rows(x).Item("Serial")

ReturnMat.Lines.BatchNumbers.Quantity = DTShipper.Rows(x).Item("SAPQuantity")



oCompany.GetLastError(ErrCode, ErrMsg)

If ErrCode <> 0 Then


End If

    Hi Brian,

    based on that order I have created delivery, Payment and Invoice

    Invoice that has been targeted for payment, can not be credit noted anymore.

    • Hi Brian,

      What if you create your AR CN as draft first and then try to add the draft manually.

      Do you have the same error ?

      And while you are at it, examine your draft if anything is wrong with your values.
