Valid credit memo for retrobilling.

During the execution of retro billing I am getting the following error message

Valid credit memo required for retro-billing

Message no. VF181

We are trying to process retro billing for the billing type F2. During execution we are using G2 as credit memo. Do we have to do any other configuration.

Pls help.

Regards,

    Hi

    Go to SPRO(IMG), SD, Sales, Sales Documents, Sales doc Header, Define Order Reason.

    Enter Reason as 1, 2 and save the document.

    Enter the same reason at VFRB.

    Reward if it helps

    Hi,

    Please make sure you have assigned correct order reason with the appropriate assign type for primary and secondary documents:

    To make the credit and debit memos and memo requests relevant for retroactive billing, you

    need to assign a type to the order reason as follows:

    <i><b>-> for primary documents, assign type 2

    ->for secondary documents, assign type 1

    ->for documents which are not relevant for retroactive billing, do not assign a type</b></i>

    You assign types to order reasons in Customizing for Sales and Distribution (choose Sales->Sales Documents ->Sales Document Header-> Define order reasons).

    <u>Primary Documents</u>

    Primary documents are:

    Invoices

    Credit memos that refer to returns

    Credit and debit memos in which you have entered the relevant order reason

    You can also assign an order reason to a memo request which then passes it along to

    the referenced credit or debit memo.

    <u>Secondary Documents</u>

    Secondary documents are the following billing documents in which you have entered the relevant

    order reason:

    Credit and debit memo requests

    Credit and debit memos

    The system displays such a document only when it has been created with reference to the

    invoice and when the currencies in both documents match.

    <b>Reward if helpful.</b>

    Hi,

    Thank you all. All the requested setting are already being done in the system However, After ran a retro-billing list (VFRB), you have to set the credit and debit memo types and order reason for the Retro-billing docs; after enter the data the system prompts with the error message VF181 "Valid credit memo required for retro-billing".

    What's make it valid?

      Hi

      There is no any assignment other than the order reason, for Credit Memo - G2, and Debit Memo - L2 and enter the order reason as 101 or 100 and excute.

      Reward if it helps
