Reference data in invoice document should be used in multiple accounting document

Hi SAP Consultants,

Have encounter prod issue. Error message "Check if invoice already entered under accounting doc. no. 1900063379 2017" in t-code MIR4.

A SAP Consultant says "Based on the error message this is a system check to prevent
duplication of invoice entry for the vendor whose invoice you
are currently entering. The error is being encountered because your
invoice document has the same Reference field as document no. 1900063379
(see attached screenshot). You need to change your Reference
for invoice 5100039159."

But based on SAP user the reference "GA-OFCSUP" is not in used by other accounting document. Can I ask for help?

Also based on data from table BKPF the reference number has been used in different accounting document and invoice and SAP users said that reference number should be assigned in different invoices

Thank you.

Have investigated regarding this prod issue. Have saw that there are similar Invoice with same invoice date, company code, vendor, currency and reference. Error appear because of this. I think if the two documents are not same the SAP User may enter another invoice date or other reference document.

Hi Jeremiah,

LIV duplication check is by the combination of company code, invoice date and reference. You can check it from OMRDC. If user confirmed the reference no i FI document 1900063379 is wrong, then you can use FB02 to correct the reference no and save. After that post the MIRO again.

It is not clear what is your actual question. You have explained what is said by SAP consultant and SAP user.
