Down payment no final invoice (F2)


Dear experts

I have configured the system for down payment. I have followed the steps defined for this configuration, i.e:

1) Billing plan. Data related:

a) Material with item category group 0005 (milestone billing).

b) Billing plan type: 01 (Milestone Billing)

c) Date category: 03 (Down payment request -proc.)

d) Date proposal

2) Pricing Procedure:

a) Subtotal with the base value calculation formula 2 (net value) before the condition AZWR.

b) Condition Type AZWR

i) Calculation type B (fixed amount)

ii) Condition category e (down payment request / clearing).

iii) Included before output tax.

iv) Condition 2 (item with pricing)

v) Calculation formula 48

vi) Printing indicator

3) Sales document: TA

4) Sales document position TAO

5) Billing Document

a) Billing type FAZ (down payment request)

b) Billing type FAS for canceling.

c) Billing category P of the billing type.

d) Blocking reason 02 (complete confirmation missing) ->assign it to billing type FAZ.

6) Copying control

a) From TA  FAZ. Copying requirement 20 entered at item level (item category TAO).

b) From TA  F2. Copying requirement 23 entered at item level (item category TAO).

7) Financial Accounting settings

a) Field status definition G031 assigned to reconciliation accounts - For the `received DP' and `DP requests'.

b) Posting key for DP (ANZ) and for output tax clearing (MVA)

c) G/L account number assignment for the tax account.

d) For posting key 19, set Sales Order as an optional field (OB41).

e) For field status variant 0001, field status group G031, set the sales order as an optional field.

f) Assign the company code to the field status variants (transaction OBC5)

After that to create the DP I have done the following flow:

1. Create sales order (VA01) with a DP set throught a billing plan

2. Create an invoice (VF01) for DP request

3. Collect the down payment related (f-29)

4. Clearing the DP (f-39)

And this should ends with the creation of a final invoice (throught VF01, invoice type F2). However, when I try, the sales orders doesn't have any invoice outstanding to be created and condition AZWR is no updated. Therefore I cannot create the final invoice.

Is there any customizing or step in the process that I have missed??
