Additional search criteria in customer invoice

Hello,

My clients wants an external invoice number to be saved in the customer invoice.

This number will be entered manually at the invoice creation, and will be used as a search criteria of the invoices.

Is there a standard field that can be used? How can I implement this?

Best regards;

    Hi,

    The external number range for billing documents is not supported.

    Please check the documentation under the customizing path IMG -> Sales and distribution -> Billing -> Billing Documents ->Define Number Range For Billing Documents

    It says: " Number assignment for billing documents can only be carried out internally, that is, the SAP System automatically assigns a consecutive number from the defined number range. "

    Best regards,

    Tao

      Hello,

      Sorry, I wasn't clear in my previous post.

      I don't need to have external number range for my invoice.

      My requirement is to have a field to save an additional number for each invoice. And that field must be used as a search criteria for invoices.

      Any idea on how to implement this?

      Best regards;

    Hi Fadoua,

    Please see if you can use the 'Reference' field (VBRK-XBLNR) available on the header tab of the invoice document for your requirement. The field is available as a search criteria on VF03 as well.

    Thanks,

    Amith
