    Hello Shailesh,

    When you procure some goods from a Vendor you create a "Vendor Invoice" for it & similarly when you sell goods to a customer you create a "Customer Invoice".

    So in simple accounting terms you need to pay money to a vendor & get money from a customer (i am not getting into complicated cases).

    The vendor invoices for which you have not paid money are called "Vendor Open Items". Similarly the customer invoices for which you have not received money are called "Customer Open Items".

    The SAP tables for this are:

    BSIK --> Vendor Open Items

    BSID --> Customer Open Items.

    Hope this helps.

    BR,

    Suhas

    hi,

    You are raising invoices for customer i.e u have sold items worth e.g 50.000 but the payment u have recieved from customer is may be nil or suppose partial payment i.e 10,000 that means the customer invoice is not cleared .

    Hence the item for which full payment is not made / it is not cleared is an open item.

    Hope it helps .

    Regards,
