AR Invoices

I have a distibutor's network, responsible to bring in orders from customers.

Now I want to generate A/R invoice for the customer (on the customers name) instead of the distibutor.

How can I do it in SAP B1?

Can anybody suggest.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ajit,

    I am not sure whether it serves your purpose or not.

    Still have a look at this.

    In case you have got the order for D1 and the same had been obtained from C1.

    I don't know whether this is an occassional scenario or it is a regular practice.

    Anyways what you can do in this scenario is that you can select D1 in the BP Code of the A/R Invoice. And in the BP name field of the A/R Invoice, add the C1 name with D1's name. Press "Control + Tab" only to get out of the field.

    Because anyways you can write a sequel query to list the invoices with BP name having the C1 name characters along with the BP Name.

    Do reply if it doesn't solve your purpose.

    Regards

    Jimmy

      Hi Ajit,

      If my understanding is right then the purpose of capturing distributor is to raise the SO in its name and later relate to sales made by a particular distributor in relation to customers.

      We can use 'Sales Employee' field to map 'Distributor' on the SO form .The SO will be raised normally for Customer C1 and additionally this field will have Distributor D1.This field will be used to print SO in the name of D1.

      For other sales cycle C1 will be used to make delivery and A/R invoice.

      Standard system reports can be used for analysis by 'Sales Employee' ie. 'Distributor'

      Regards,

      Sam

    Hello,

    I am not so sure about your problem but it seems the distributor maintains more than one customers, so, if you create invoice, it directly uses customer name. Have you tried to create customer group called distributor and then every customers under the distributor's network will set to have the distributor as its customer group ?

    Rgds,

    Ajit,

    Besides all the answers and the questions that have gone back and forth, I would like to ask just 1 question.

    How do you show the transactions in your books? Is my understanding as below Correct?

    It seems you create Sales Order for D1

    Presuming you Delivery to C1 and Invoice C1

    It seems you want to receive Payment from D1

    Please let me know.

    I have an alternative suggestion. We have clients who sell through Distributors. In their case we use the BP Channel Code and BP Channel Name fields on the master data record to link the C1 customer to the D1 distributor. This carries through to the sales orders and invoices which will serve you for reporting purposes.

    In the case where you raise the Invoice in the name of the C1 customer and receive funds from D1 you will want to also setup the customer C1 with payment consolidation having D1 as the parent payee. Therefore you will be able to invoice C1 but receive the payments from D1.
