Set order status to completed if subsequent document is a proforma invoice

Dear Experts,

I created a debit memo request to create as subsequent document a proforma invoice only. This special business case has to do with customs purposes and should stop after the creation of the proforma..

Now the debit memo request is still open and the next batch run is picking up the DMR again and create another proforma invoice.

What I have to do to set the order status to completed after the first proforma invoice is issued?

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards

Frank

    Hello,

    Check for the possiblilies of the following.

    In VOV8, slect the debit memo request order type, make the Order related billing type as F5 (Proforma - Order related).

    Check the item category for the Debit memo request item, standard is L2N. Maintian the billing relevency field as

    D-Proforma , maintain the completion as Colpleted after the first reference , if required.

    Prase

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I set the entries like you proposed.

    Now I get an error message in the log:

    0200145021 000010 The item is not relevant for billing

      Probably you are using a billing type which doesnt have SD document category as U. Go to VOFA to check. Normally for debit memos P is used as SD document category in the billing type.

    Checked again the settings.

    The debit memo request is set to SD document categ "L" but the proforma invoice type has SD document categ "U",

    From my point of view the problem is that the status fields for invoicing in tables VBUK and VBUP are empty.

    Has it to do with the SD document categ "L" in the DMR?

    If yes, which type I can use to create an order document as basis for the proforma invoice?

    Do you see any other possibilities to solve my problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards

    Frank
