    For creating a intercompany invoice interface you need to do the following steps:-

    1. You need to maintain the Account at Customer in the customer master

    2. Ask your functional consultant to create an output type for you for this interface and let that output be triggered in the billing document.

    3. You need to create a partner profile for Customer and Partner Role as BP. Message Type INVOIC, Message code FI and Process Code as SD08.

    4. You need to maitain the logical address to convert it to the vendor, this entry is maintained in the table EDILOGADR.

    5. Till now what ever you maintained is for the outbound interface.

    6. You need to create a partner profile for the vendor as Message Type INVOIC, Message Code FI & Process code INVF.

    7. The FI functional consultant has to enable that vendor as EDI and he has to make the necessary setting for the document to be posted successfully.

    If your functional consultant is not in a position to do them, you can ask me and i will help you to do those setting as well.

    Hi Vamsi,


    Generally VF03 is used for , Displaying Intercompany Billing Document.

    Inter-Company Billing - Automatic Posting To Vendor Account (SAP-EDI)

    Automatic posting to vendor account is done by EDI. In our case where both companies

    are proccessed in the same system (& client), it is sufficient to create Idoc.

    This proccess requires several steps:

    1. Creating a Customer to represent the receiving Company.

    2. Creating a Vendor to represent the supplying company.

    3. Creating a Port

    4. Maintain an Output Type

    5. Creating a Logical Address

    6. Creating a Partner Profile for both Customer & Vendor

    7. The relevant MM customizing is maintained.

    8. The relevant FI customizing is maintained.

    happy solving.....
