Does Tolerance Key 'DQ' work with GR based Inv indicator 'On'?

Hi Experts,

I have got GR based Inv. indicator checked in the PO and we have also got some 'DQ' percentage tolerance defined in OMR6. As I have tested, even through the IR qty. is within tolerance limit, system is blocking the invoicing with the reason code 'Quantity Block'. However, when I take the 'GR based Invoice indicator' off in the PO, tolerance key 'DQ' works fine. My Question is 'does tolerance key 'DQ' ONLY work with GR based Invoice checked off (Unchecked)?

I also came across below SCN link which is a bit confusing. There is a SAP Note (1700073) that says if 'DQ' does not work with GR based Indicator as Checked in the PO, there is a program error which is corrected in later releases and we are on a higher release so this should work. User in the thread at the end confirmed that DQ worked for him only if 'GR based Inv. Indicator' was Not checked.

  • I changed the tag to MM (Materials Management) the place where goods receipts are posted and where you expect the error message

    Kindly post with the most relevant primary tag to get the attention of the right experts who can help. Without the proper tag, the right people will not see your question and those that do see are not likely be able to provide a solution.

    The OSS note 2055131 - Invoice posted for more than the quantity delivered and GR-Bsd IV is set is very explicit and has even examples with screenshots and a step by step guide explaining what you have to do

    Thanks for your help. Actually, my scenario is opposite. With GR based inv. check ON in the PO, tolerance key DQ is blocking the invoices for payment which are within tolerance percentage. Suppose, if upper limit percentage is set up as 1%, system should NOT block invoices for payments as long as exceeded IR qty. is within 1% limit. But in my case, system is blocking invoice for payment even if it is 0.01% more than the GR qty. and displaying a warning message that IR qty. has exceeded GR qty. However, when I take GR based Inv. check off (I-e unchecked) in the PO, system does not block invoice for payment as long as it is within 1% limit.

    Just to add, there is a thread (below) which talks about OSS note 1700073 but we are using version 740 in which it should already be available/implemented??

    OSS note 1700073 only talks about the message and the log, it does not tell anything about the payment block

    You may also want to check the examples from the blog https://blogs.sap.com/2014/04/18/invoice-tolerance-limits-an-insight-part-1/
