    Following checks are to be made at your end.

    - Go to VTLA, select your item category for the combination of your order type and delivery type and tick the box "Update document flow".

    - Go to VTFL, select your delivery type and billing type and maintain routine 003 for the field Copying requirements.

    - Go to VOV7, select your item category and execute. There maintain B for the field Completion Rule.

      I have no idea about the configuration but as a simple rule system shows the document flow for the subsequest documents and the previous documents which are related with the document for which you are checking the document flow.

      Now in case of an commercial invoice the flow shows the follow on document of Accounting and prevoiuos documents of delivery, order, contract,etc. However the system do not show the Performa Invoice since performa invoice is created with reference to the Delivery and so is a subsequent document of delivery. From commercial invoice we will have to go back one step to delivery and then again take a forward step to Performa Invoice, which as standard SAP do not happen in document flow. the simple Sales Cycle is something like this :-

      Inq.--> Quot. --> Contract --> Order > Delivery--

      >1. PGI

      2. Shipment --> Shipment Cost

      3. Performa Invoice

      4. Commercial Invoice ---> FI Document

      Hope this will clear your doubt.
