Buss.Area not getting transferred to invoice list

Hi Gurus,

hope u all r doin good outhere, i have an issue with bussiness area not getting populated or transferrred for Invoice list that are released to accounting .

the scenario here is: in the accounting overview under the Billing Invoice(VF03) we are able to see the buss area against the customer acct line item and the GL acctline item, but when we go into the Accounting overview under Invoice List (VF23), the Buss area is not getting populated against the Customer lineitem..., we are not able to figure out what is it in the configuration...,

we are on 4.6 , and we have an OSS note 69499 (given below) on this issue which says



Business areas are not transferred for invoice lists that are released to financial accounting.

Additional key words

GSBER TVTA VF21 SAPMV62S factoring discount

Cause and prerequisites

This was not programmed


A solution is only available in the standard system as of Release 3.0D.

You can make the attached advance correction that uses a user exit.

In this solution, the business area is copied from the sales area table (TVTA) for the sales area of the invoice list header. A business area determination on plant/division level (T134G) is not possible because the item information of the individual billing documents is no longer available in the invoice list.

Source code corrections



and we have contacted SAP , some one from SAP side told that the program is existing in that userexit already with our 4.6c,

someone has suggested that in OB65 the check box is not activated against the comp code i use, but i have found that to be the check mark for the financial statements at the buss area level..will that make any diff to my issue... is it something with the FI part or SD part which do you think is incorrect ....any kind of suggestions pertaining to this issue .here would be helpful.

some body please throw some light on it, i would be very much grateful.

Thanks in advance

    Dear Jay

    Generally, if one invoice contains multiple business areas, only blank space will appear in accounting document. Check whether this is not in your case.

    If so and you would like to avoid this, invoice split should happen based on business area. Invoice split can be done through <b>VOFM</b> data transfer - billing document.
