Invoice split due to different header data


Generation of Invoice against sales orders, splits due to different header data. Split analysis shows the reason as a)Billing date for billing index b)Combination criteria c) Reference document number d) Translation date and e) Payment reference.

Will a routine at VBRK/VBRP at item level for each of the item categories help. Can i put it as combine billing if the Sales Order number and billing date is same?

Please advise.

    Hi there,

    If the only difference is the billing date, and if you have delivery related billing then you can do it as follows:

    1 - Check that you are in one FI period with the docs

    2 - Reverse the current invoices

    3 - Check the GI date on your deliveries - write it down.

    4 - Reverse the GI - VL09 - but change the date to the same as the original GI date

    5 - VL02N, type in the GI date in the Actual GI field.

    6 - GI

    7 - VF04 to simulate billing before the actual invoice is created.

    Dear Udaynath

    If the invoice split has happened only bcoz of billing date, please note that In customer master, if no invoice dates are maintained, then the actual goods issue date will be considered as billing date in case of delivery related billing.

    In order related billing, the billing date of the order forms the basis of the billing date.

    So please check whether your Actual GI date differs in deliveries. If so, go to VF04, input sales area there under "Selection" tab and go to "Default Data" tab. There maintain the billing date and execute.
