Inbound Invoicing from same vendor across multiple company codes -

We are accepting inbound invoices from carriers. I have a carrier that is submitting under the same vendor number for two company codes. I cannot save the same vendor in T076B using OBCA. The two entries are identical for the key with only the company code being different. Is there a way to allow the same vendor to submit invoice idocs into SAP with only different company codes? If not, any suggestions on how to handle this situation?

    I think you can assign the same Partner number to two Company codes by differentiating the Company code name field in OBCA. Check it once. Example:-

    LI 90000 159011 0001

    LI 90010 159016 0001

    LI 90020 159018 0001

    Company Code Name in the Invoice

    The name of the company code in the invoice must correspond to the name for our company transferred by the EDI partner. EDI incoming processing needs this name to be able to uniquely determine the company code to be posted to.

    Technical note:

    The name is taken from the intermediate structure INV_ID01, segment EDI_Z3 (invoice recipient), field EDI_Z3-NAME1.

    The name for the intermediate structure INVOIC01 is taken from the segment E1EDKA1 (qualifier 'RE'), field E1EDKA1-PARTN or E1EDKA1-NAME (if E1EDKA1-PARTN is empty).

    Hi Johnna,


    I have tested in my internal system, and it is possible to enter two identical partner types and partner numbers via OBCA transaction. Since the company codes are different, you then only need to enter different values in the columns "Comp.code name in the invoice" and "CoCd", like this:

    line 1: Partner type = LI / Partner no = LY01 / Company code name = 0001 / Company Code = 0001

    line 2: Partner type = LI / Partner no = LY01 / Company code name = ZZZ1 / Company Code = ZZZ1


    Regards,

    Carla
