Invoice Split - 3rd Party Item and Normal Item

Dear SD Guru,

I tried to create an invoice from a single order, which consists of 2 different types of items, 3rd party item and normal (sell from stock) but system has split the 2 items into 2 different invoices.

Since the 2 items are from the same order, the standard combination criteria, the header data are the same.

The split analysis says, "Combination criteria in the billing" and followed by 2 docs, 1 is empty and the other one with value "0010105".

Any suggestion is much appreciated.

    I have created your scenario....... Its obvious that we get two invoices because for the normal item delivery is done and with ref to delivery invoice is created......

    For third party item the invoice is with ref to order......

    So as to get a single invoice, go VF01 and give the delivery No. of normal item and give the sales order no. also for billing the customer to third party item....

    Hope this helps you.....

      Hi Bageerath,

      Thanks a lot for your reply.

      I have just found out the mistake I made, in the copying control.

      In VTFA, for both items (TAD and TAS), at the Data VBRK/VBRP, both items have to be "001 Inv.split (sample)" . It was left empty for TAD. I have maintained both items and it is combining both items in the invoice now.

      Thanks a lot!

    HI Kah Kiong Soo,

    The invoce split takes place based on copying routine which is assigned in the VTFA transaction .

    Go to transaction VTFA here you select your order and your invoice type then go in to the item details through selecting the itemcategory.

    In the item detail screen you can find field Data VBRK/VBRP

    this the field will control the invoice split so you check whick routine as assigned to that as per standard it is 001-Inv. Split (sample).

    Take ABAPer help he will able to tell what is the logic involved in that routine then if you want you can change through copying standard one.

    I hope it will help you

      Hi Murali,

      Thanks a lot for the your reply.

      The issue now is, we are not supposed to have any customization. So, I'm thinking if

      there is any way to know the cause of the split.

      2 items, from the same order, 3rd Party & Service Item. Both are order-related billing. System automatically splits the 2 items into 2 invoices.

      Split analysis doesn't tell much info.
