FV60 what is the reason of document type in its selection?

Hi !!

When using FV60, which we commonly use for Invoice or credit memo to the vendor. I want to know what is the reason we will use different document types like: Bank Settlement or GL account document or any other weird document type, which actually dont relate to Vendor Invoice or credit memo.

I know I can hide this documen type from edit options, but I want to know why SAP provided different document types during Vendor Invocing or Credit Memo. Share the scenarios.

I am not an FI expert, so your some jargon you will use go top of my head.. Apologies in advance..

    Hello Anand,

    If you post a document from FB60, you might want to change document type in order to differentiate between different business processes. The fact that there is an option to change document type is not a problem per se, because you won't be able to post from FB60 using document type, where vendor is not allowed. Normally speaking each document type has allowed accounts which can be posted to using this particular document type (customers, vendors, GL accounts, materials etc.). You can check this part of settings in t-code OBA7.

    On the other hand, there are a lot of settings which might depend on document types. Range of possibilities is wide. Usage of particular document type might trigger some VAT related processes in background (e.g. creation of tax related entries in VAT reports etc.).

    Besides nowadays, most business try to minimize usage of manual FI-invoice. Most business processes are performed via integrated logistics flow, where document types are retrieved automatically without user input. Normally FI-invoices are reserved for exceptional cases only.
