Park invoices that havent been Goods Receipted via EDI


Dear Gurus

Before posting my query, I confirm that I have gone through SCN and found similar posts, but not answered - so posting again. Please see similar posts in below links.

We are looking at a way of parking invoices via EDI on our system that havent been GRN'd but want to maintain Goods-Receipt-Based IV button ticked in the PO to ensure that the functionality around this are maintained.

We implemented note 501524 - So, parking is possible in general. But, in our scenario where PO is not GRN'ed - we are getting error in Idoc (message ME 708 - Items not selectable).

Business scenario: Our vendor dispatches goods and immediately issues invoice. As the invoice is coming via EDI, we receive invoice first - but goods takes some time (for eg: 3 -5 days for transport via road) to get receipted. We want to park the invoices received till the goods receipted, and once the goods receipted our team can post the invoices. But, currently we can NOT park invoices as SAP throws error at Idoc level.

Note: We do NOT want to UNTICK 'Goods Receipt based Invoice' - because we do NOT want to take a risk of posting and clearing invoices without Goods Receipt. We just want to park them so that our accounting team can look into.

Please suggest if there is any SAP standard way to handle this.

Many Thanks in advance.
