Self billing with vendor advance payment in MRRL


I have implemented self billing process but now I have a new request from my customer related with this topic.

The request is to have vendor advance payment in selfbilling process.

For what I've seen the vendor advance payment process is a business function that can be activated in MIRO transaction for the "normal" MM billing process.

What I need is to have the vendor advance payment functionality available in transaction MRRL where the selfbilling is processed.

Can anybody help me with this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

João Marques

    Process steps:

    1) Activate Business function "LOG_MMFI_P2P" in the transaction SFW5.

    2) Call transaction ME21N and select the required down-payment category.

    3) Call transaction ME2DP and create down payment.

    4) Call transaction F-54 and clear down-payment. For automatic clearing, run this transaction periodically as a background job.

    • The process you have just referred is considered when the self billing invoice is created in MRRL?

      Or is a "normal" billing down payment process?

      According to my knowledge, there is no options to clear down payment through the transaction MRRL. Either you've to use the transaction F-54 or MIRO.

      When I create the self billing invoice how will the system behaves? It will be created a selfbilling invoice for the down payment first?

      As I explained earlier, automatic clearing of down payment request is not supported by MRRL, so please check the possibility for run the transaction F-54 periodically as background job.

      For more details, please check the following link.

      Read the section restriction in the above mentioned link and SAP KBA 2121740 - Restrictions for Down Payment Clearing when working with MM invoices
