VF11 reverse billing, but no FI document generated

Our current posting period is 2008/03, the FI posting period 2008/02 has been closed.

We create one billing document in period 02/2008, and now we'd like to reverse this billing document via t-code VF11. However, during reversal, a information message issued in the status bar: "VF050:Document & saved (no accounting document generated)".

Then I checked all the related documents, the billing document has been reversed, but no FI document was generated. Is this normal? FI and SD now should be inconsistent.

Has anyone got this problem before?

Thanks a lot.

    Hi,

    I am not sure but still suggest you to check this process in development and then take it to Production.

    Check the cancellation document's document type. if not can you pls add it as RV and make the negative posting field as 'B'.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind Regards

    Check the field "Posting block" in cancellation invoice document type ( ex: S1) details screen by going VOFA transaction .

    If it marked then accounting document wont generate automatically...u need to relase it manually by going to VF02 Transaction.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Shaik

    Thanks all, but I'm still not sure whether the suggestion provided so far will help.

    More information about this issue:

    The billing document was created in last period, and corresponding FI document was generated in last period as well.

    - if the last period is NOT closed in FI, while VF11 to cancel the billing document, everything works fine: the billing document was cancelled AND the corresponding FI document was reversed.

    - if the last period is closed in FI, while VF11 to cancel the billing document, the problem happened: the billing document was cancelled, BUT the corresponding FI document did not reversed automatically. ( an information message VF050 is issued to indicate this)

    In VF11, if I input a billing date of today's date, the billing document will be canceled in current period, and the corresponding FI document is reversed in current period as well.

    My expection is: the corresponding FI document should be reversed at the same time while billing document is cancelled, otherwise FI and SD are not consistent. If the last period is closed, and "Billing Date" field is empty in VF11, should the system issue an error to provent the cancellation of the billing document?

      Dear Effie Zhou,

      In your query u have an answer.

      Its correct that if actual invoice is posted in last period & if period is closed, Invoice can be cancelled by entering the cancelling date as date in current period.

      And as far the option of not allowing to cancelling on invoice if previous posting period is closed is not feseable because u may have posted wrong invoice in last month now u want to cancel the invoice by reversing accounts entry in current period.

      Above option can be done through user exit.

      regards,

      GHS.

      Rajesh,

      We follow on your suggestion via path

      On VF02 screen>>Enter Cancelled billing document number>>press on enter button>>select menubar>>>Goto>>header>>header>>you will get billing document header data >> check billing document date

      However, billing document date shown as greyed-out in change status. How can we set this filed be changeable? or do you have other suggestion?

      Thank you very much!
