Collective Billing with different Sold To Parties but same Ship To Party

Hi,

We have a requirement where the Client wants a Single Invoice for multiple deliveries, each having a separate Sold To Party but the same Ship To Party. Example:

Delivery 1:

Sold to Party:SP1

Ship To Party:ShP

Delivery 2:

Sold to Party:SP2

Ship To Party:ShP

While trying Collective Billing through VF04, two invoices are generated instead of one. The Split analysis details:

Split analy.

Split due to different partner data

PR Fld Name $000000001 $000000002

SP Customer Number 1 SP1 SP2

SP Address XXXXXXXXXXX YYYYYYYYY

SP Customer Number 1 SP1 SP2

SP Address XXXXXXXXXXX YYYYYYYYY

Split due to different header data

Fld Name $000000001 $000000002

Sold-to party SP1 SP2

Reference Document Number1234567896 1234567897

Assignment number 1234567896 1234567897

The checks on the Partner and Header data are Standard SAP checks (SAP note:11162).

Is there any method wherein we can circumvent thiese checks and create a single invoice?

These checks are not due to routine mentioned for VBRK/VBRP field in the Copy Control from Delivery to Billing.

One possible approach could be to clear the variable ( having the Sold To Party number) in the routine assigned to VBRK/VBRP field and circumvent the standard check but then this value will no longer be available in the invoice. How can we create the invoice then?

Is there any method to fulfill this requirement of create a Single Invoice for multiple deliveries, each having a separate Sold To Party but the same Ship To Party.

Kindly give me your suggestions.

Regards.

    We had this same requirement. It is solved by moving the soldto partner from header partner to item partner in the partner schema that is used for these collective invoices.

    • Partner procedures (header + item) are assigned to invoice type, transaction VOFA.

      Partner functions (Soldto partner is a partner function) are assigned to a procedure, transaction VOPAN.

      It is impossible to have the soldto as header partner when invoicing on multiple soldto partners.

      When you remove the soldto partner, either completely or as an item partner you should pay attention that not any of the existing prints or interfaces is using a soldto header partner.

    Dear Som,

    I can suggest that you make both the Sold to Parties have the same "Payer, Payment Terms, Inco Terms" and the like, which are the

    pre-requisites for having a single Billing Doc., from multiple Delivery Docs., and try for a single Invoice in VF04.

    Do post back your result.

    All the best.

    Venkat
