    Hello,

    As you know when you create a billing document and save it, it can be blocked for posting because of various reasons. It can be released to accounting throguh VF02. In the same way, when you reverse a billing document, another document is getting created, ie.. the cancellation document, when you save the same, it also passed to accounting to reverse the accounting entries created by the original invoice.

    The cancellation invoice also may be blocked for posting to accounting because of many reasons. Unless it is posted to accounting, the entries will not be reversed. So there is an option in cancellation billing document also to release it to accounting.

    When Invoice is created, it creates an Accounting Document. The Accounting Document is required to reverse the accounting entry. Incase the Cancellation Document is not released to accounts by default, it has to be released through T.Code: VF02

    Dear Ashis

    As you would be aware for any entry in sales, there would be a debit and credit entries in FI.

    So when you generate invoice, via Accounting document, the sales get credited (your inventory value will be reduced), customer gets debited. Once you cancel in SD, how system will know it has to be adjusted in FI also. So when you cancel in VF11, parallely an accounting document would be generated to set right the above entries. That is debit entries get credited and credit entries get debited.

    thanks

    Dear Friend,

    When you generate a billing document in SD there is transfer posting to the FI accounts .

    Now when you have passed the billing there is amount which is passed to acconting side which also needed to be cancelled so there is a release document creation in the billing cancellation request.

    Hi There

    In every Billing document type there is an option of automatic release to accounting or manual

    You can use this check box to see if your query can be resolved with this
