SAP SD - Control Repeat Output in the Cancelled Invoice during Org Invoice Cancellation.

We are facing challenge after enabling the Multiple Issue functionality for one of the Invoice Output where we send PDF attachment via email. As the Multiple issue function will retrigger the Output whenever there is a change in the Invoice Document which is valid. Our case is,

1. Customer Invoice *XYX* created in Nov 2017 - Output Triggered for the first time. This is ok.

2. Customer Invoice *XYZ* was cancelled in Dec 2017 and hence a cancellation Invoice created. Here, as per std, a Cancellation Indicator is updated automatically in the Customer Invoice *XYZ* which is a change and hence as per Multiple Issue Function, the Output retrigger in the Customer Invoice *XYZ*. How to control this repeat output during Cancellation Indicator update which the User do not want.

Pls share if there are any specific technical developments can be done to manage and exclude "Cancellation Indicator" update validation before Repeating the Output.

  • Considering that after releasing a F2 invoice to accounting you cannot perform a lot of changes to the billing document (other than cancellation I can think of only text maintenance) and that sending a F2 to a customer before you have released to FI is not a good idea, I do not see much value in setting multiple issuing for pdf printouts for F2 in the first place.

    In the rare cases where users need to maintain some text that influences what is printed you can just tell them to issue the output manually (if such change is allowed at all by local legislation).

    check what is the Routine that is assigned to the output type in the output procedure.

    if it is a standard routine copy the same and create new one with Logic-Excluding the cancellation invoice and assign the same to the output type

    • Thanks Madam for making it more clearer!

      And yes my questions are somehow side-tracking but there was a lot of learning your your each replies and if OP had gone through your replies in which I had asked the questions then he may find alternative solutions.
