Default Invoicing party in MIRO

Hello gurus

While entering invoices with reference to a PO in MIRO the Vendor # is populated as the invoicing party by default.

When our A/P folks are entering the incoming invoices, based on the remit to address in the invoice and vendor name, they

need to search for the correct Invoicing party and then enter it in MIRO.

In XK03, I tried to assign a Default Invoicing party in partner functions.

However when entering the invoice , still the PO vendor is the PI by default and not the one maintained in XK03.

How do I configure it , so that the PI marked as default in XK03 ( WYT3-DEFPA) should populate in the incoming invoice?

    The vendor master is a template, it will give its values to the PO, but not directly to MIRO.

    Precondition, that you have a partner schema for the PO that has the PI partner.

    Do you have the PI partner in your PO?

      I checked that the 'Define Partner Schema' IMG activity is missing in Our system.

      It is necessary if Partners are to be sent via SRM PO's.

      We are on SRM 4.0 ( EBP 5.0) & this activity is available in SRM 5.0 onwards.

      So we cannot modify our PO to include Invoicing party.

      Is there anyway we can set this in the PO, during replication?

    The reason why the PO is still coming up with the PO Vendor also know as the purchasing vendor is because, the PO was created before you maintained the Partner PI ( Invoicing Party) in the vendor master record. In order for the PI to show up by default when entering an incoming invoice through MIRO, you would have to do the following.

    1. Enter Transaction code ME23N.

    2. Enter the PO number in question.

    3. Next, click on display/change

    4. Expand the header

    5. Click on the Partners tab

    6. Enter the PI under "Function" and the number and save.

    7. Go back to MIRO and key in the invoice. It will now come up with the invoicing party number.

    A point of note: Remember that, all PO which were created before you maintained the partner PI on the vendor master record will not automatically default with the partner PI when you receive these invoices through MIRO. You will have to repeat the above process in order to have them posted the partner PI.

    Only POs which were created after you maintained the partner PI will automatically defaults when you key in invoices through MIRO.

      Thanks Elias,

      It is now pretty clear to me that the Invoicing party will appear in the Invoice, iff it appears on the PO.

      My problem now assumes a completely different form.

      Since we are using SRM in extended classic scenario, I will post my question in that forum.
