SAP RULE : If you use the recurrence pattern in the invoicing time frame for schedule type Periodic Fixed Price or for schedule type Time and Material, the system automatically creates invoice dates within the time frame – however with the maximum number of dates:

  • -For monthly recurrence patterns: 24 invoice dates

Create a new Customer Contract, in the WoC Sales Order > Customer Contract

Go to Pricing and Invoicing Tab > Invoice Schedule.

Apply the Time Frame to the Item:

And click on OK.

===> Only 24x Dates have been created. We expected the generation of those date on the whole duration between the fields “Start Date” and “End Date” of the “Invoice Time Frame” screen.

Which means we need 60 invoice dates not 24 (the limit by SAP)

Can any one propose a solution please ?
Thanks.

Hello Hani,

As you already know that there is a number of dates restriction for invoicing schedule in sales order, it is documented as well in help center document: "Invoice Schedule".

Use of the Recurrence Pattern in the Invoicing Time Frame

If you use the recurrence pattern in the invoicing time frame for schedule type Periodic Fixed Price or for schedule type Time and Material , the system automatically creates invoice dates within the time frame – however with the following maximum number of dates:

  • For yearly recurrence patterns: 10 invoice dates
  • For monthly recurrence patterns: 24 invoice dates
  • For weekly recurrence patterns: 26 invoice dates
  • For daily recurrence patterns: 31 invoice dates

We cannot change this design. But if we have more than 24 month for one item for example the start/end date is from 1st Not 2016 to 31st Oct 2019. (3 years). There is a workaround: creating 2 lines for this item.

1. first line, with start and end date: 1st Nov 2016 to 31st Oct 2018. => 24 months.

2. second line, with start and end date: 1st Nov 2018 to 31st Oct 2019. => 12 months.

Thanks,

Adie
