partial cancellation

Hi experts,

For canclling goods issue for deliveries, and cancelling billing document, why partial cancellation is not allowed? Is it due to the system procedure or ...? U know, customer always are not willing to hear "system standard configuration".

Pls advise. Thx.

    It seems to me that your client contradicts itself - if they've closed the books on May, how would they expect such "partial cancellation" to be posted? Even if it was allowed, it would have to post (-1) ton in May, which has already been closed.

    I still think this should be handled the same way as any inventory discrepancies. For example, if they ran an inventory in the warehouse and found something missing, what would they do? They would write it off in the current month, right? Why the same can't be done here?

    Anyway, this is really more of an MM/FI question.

    I've never heard anyone request a "partial cancellation" of a billing document. This would, essentially, mean a change in the billing document, which qouldn't make much sense and may actually be illegal in some cases. Imagine that you've sent an invoice to the customer and then partially cancelled it. You would end up with 2 documents with the same number but completely different information.

    Cancellations should seldom occur to begin with.

    Let us assume one billing document have three line items and if you want to cancel only one particular line item, it is quite possible in VF11. But what about the preceding document which you cannot cancel partially in VL09 ??

    That is why it is always safe if there is need to reverse partial goods, it is better to cancel the entire billing document and reverse the PGI

    • Hi

      I think you can convince your Customer for a Change Management, and you can always use the Invoice Correction request (doc. type RK) which is primarily used for any discripancy in Quantity or value of material billed to Customer.
