inbound invoic idoc for multiple services error M8 321

Hi All,

We are busy implementing electronic invoice verification for services using the INVOIC idoc. Goods receipt based invoice verification is activated. The delivery note numbers are stored in segment E1EDP02 with qualifier '016'.

We are on ECC6 and are using the function module idoc_input_invoic_mrm. If we try to post an invoice for a service entry sheet (or material document) for more then 1 service, the above error occurs.

if you replicate the process online, it works.

The error states that more then 1 item is created for that purchase order item and delivery note number combination. The statement is in fact correct because a service entry sheet can only be created for 1 purchase order line at a time and will result in 1 delivery note number (reference document in the header).

Has anyone come accross this before? We have searched SAP notes extensively and have logged an OSS with SAP but have been informed that this is designed functionality. Before we go into the process of developing this with SAP, we would like to hear from anybody who has this error and find out what was done to correct it.

Karen.

    Hi Karen,

    According to Note 103051 - EDI: Multiple reference to same purchase order item.

    Module IDOC_INPUT_INVOIC_MRM (only as of Release 4.0) for the logistics invoice verification can distinguish different goods receipts by means of the delivery note number. For this purpose, GR-related invoice verification must be active. Please check the note.

    Thank you,

    Shyam
