    Hi Shambhu Sarkar,

    Once the order or contract of mile stone billing is completed.. do not use t.code VF01 to create invoice... instead use VF04 billing due list.. only due invoice are displayed and u can use the relavent document for invoice...this is the usual way how the client or user follows to create invoice.

    Kindly reward points if useful.

    Can you update whether the Two Material you are mentioning are Same material, but quantity being 2 in same Line Item?

    If my understanding is correct and you have a requirement of billing only Quantity 1 at the time of Billing, Ensure to maintain it as a separate Line item for 1 each.

      During the milestone process, system will not consider the quantity and it consider either the percentage basis or fixed value basis by refering the net value of the document. This is standard SAP behaviour.

      As your requirement to bill the customer both on percentage and quantity basis then

      Try this

      At the time of creation of billing doc through VF01, selection the selection list and try to change the quantity from 2 to 1 then check, if this is not working then

      you need fulfill this through ABAP development.

      1. Develop a screen and in this the coloumn as -

      Sales Order Number (Non editable)

      Line item(Non editable)

      Quantity(Non editable)

      Net Value of item (Non editable)

      Mileston Percentage(Non editable)

      Billing Value (Net Value * Percentage)

      Quantity to Bill (Editable - user enters the quantity to bill)

      Net Billing Value (Billing value * Quanity)

      In down keep button as SAVE, the movement user click save then you need to run BDC for VF01 background to create billing for quanity to bill.
