scheduling agreement and VBFA - invoice missing

Hi,

I have a scheduling agreement (SD doc. categ. E or F), I create a delivery in reference to it and an invoice in reference to the delivery. If I enter in VBFA with scheduling agreement as preceding document I see only the delivery and not the invoice. If I enter with delivery number as reference doc I see the invoice. So the link in VBFA is between sch. agr. and delivery and separately between delivery and invoice. Is this standard?! The customizing looks ok, the flag on update flow is set. If I check the flow from the sch. agr. it shows all the docs.

Thanks!

    For scheduling agreement type DS (or BL) - no delivery schedules used, no delivery orders you can see the invoice in VBFA when you enter the scheduling agreement number in VBELV-VBFA.

    For scheduling agreements with delivery schedules, like LZ - no, you will not see the invoice as a line in VBFA if you use exactly the same approach as for DS, you will just see the deliveries:

    For scheduling agreements with delivery orders LZM - you will not see the invoice in VBFA when you enter the scheduling agreement number as preceding document, you just see the deliveries and the delivery orders.

    I see no reason for you to worry at this point that something is wrong with your configuration or that you have encountered some inconsistency in your system. For the examples I used an unmodified system with standard document types.

    I cannot really say why they designed the solutions in this specific way, but, frankly speaking, I try to avoid using VBFA in reports, so I do not see the absence of the invoice in VBFA as a problem.
