    Hi Nouhaila

    Welcome! If the delivery document is being created automatically once the sales order created it is because it is set as such in the Sales Document type configuration. Check this setting for the Cash Sale doc type. You can see the [Immediate Delivery] flag is set.

    You of course cannot use VL01N to create another delivery for this sales order (because it exists already) but you should be able to change it.

    Please post a screenshot of the error you are receiving and what you are specifically trying to do. It may be that you need to Pick that delivery so need to enter the Picking Quantities.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks & Regards

    • Thank you Phill for your answer

      In fact while trying to create an invoice document (VL01) based on that delivery i have the message below:

      That's why i thought of that i should maybe edit the outbound delivery .

      What do you think?

      Thank you.

    Not exactly sure what document types you are trying to create but you will need to first process the delivery before trying to create the billing document using VF01. See if Picking is required (in Picking tab) but if not simply choose the Goods Issue button (there needs to be stock of course of the item you are issuing) and if that is successfully processed you should then be able to invoice the delivery (assuming delivery related billing and no POD required).

    Good Luck and if this has answered your question please make as Best Answer.

    Thanks & Regards

    Go to VA02, input that sale order reference and check whether any incompletion log is there. If so, once you complete that, system will allow you to create billing document. The other issue could be the delivery would not have posted for goods issue which you can check in VL02N
