Two DMRs were combined onto one invoice number

2 separate DMR numbers were created on the same day for the same customer using VA01capture.jpg. When the debit memo request processed overnight, the two DMRs were combined onto one invoice number, bringing in the PO and header notes from the first DMR entered.

Is there an way to avoid this situation. There should be different invoices for each DMR

We can Create One Debit Memo Request to Multiple Original Invoices. For that we have to create 1st Debit memo Request with reference to 1st Invoice then in creation mode at Menu==>Sales Order==>With Reference to field we can give other Invoice so that we can fetch multiple invoices into one debit memo request with subsequent we can create one debit Memo at VF01

But in your case 2 debit Memo Request into one debit Memo for that we have to suppress Billing Overview Field in Vf01. Because through this field user can do multiple order into one bill or multiple delivery into one bill. then we have to take the help Transaction Variant in that we can Supress Billing Document Overview Field and Create new transaction code through SE93. Or else we can develop routine with the help of abaper.

Hi Rupesh, thanks for writing...

I am asking where the settings should be changed to avoid combination of two debit memo requests into one invoice.


Billing Document Overview Field we have to supress through transaction Varient or Screen Varient. Or Else we have to write a logic for this screen through abaper

You have not shared your configuration between DMR and Debit Memo and hence, cannot assist why system has generated one billing document against two source documents. You should be aware, there are certain criteria both at header and item level fields in the source document against which, an invoice split will happen. Having said this, if the PO number at both the DMRs are different, then, there should be two Debit Memos in your case. The control is in VTFA where you set "A" against the field "Reference Number" at header level. This will take care of your requirements
