VF01 - Billing document showing error


We are facing issue during Billing Document creation through VF01 tcode. Actually, user created Billing document with wrong Billing type which is showing SD document category "U" - Proforma invoice.

Now, as per SAP Standard, we can't cancel Proforma Invoices. Hence, we had made it as "complete" through VF02 --> Billing Document --> Complete.

After this document flow showing below screen...

And Invoice document is showing as "Canceled" in this screen.

After this, if we are processing Billing document again against delivery, system showing that message "The document has already been fully invoiced".

Kindly help.

    I have never encountered such problem with LF->F8. Is the problem reproducible in a test system?

    It is interesting that your delivery is shown as completed although you have not created any invoices, just proforma (I assume that you perform delivery-related billing, please correct me if I misunderstood you).

    One of the things that I would do (assuming that the case is reproducible) would be to compare the settings for your document types to LF(TAN)->F8, including copy control.

    If the settings are correct and nobody changed them recently - is it possible that someone used vl_complete without understanding what it does? This could be one explanation why the status of the delivery does not seem right. If this is what happened you can try to redetermine the status with report rvdelsta (run it first in simulation mode to see if statuses can be redetermined).

    If you suspect database inconsistencies - take a look at notes 2006809 - How to fix delivery-related inconsistencies(Composite SAP note), 1472007 - Document flow status needs to be corrected and (if there were config changes) 319866 - Correction report billing relevance after Customizing changes.
