Delivery based on Billing document

Dear All,

Is it possible to create a billing document directly w.r.t. sales order. Then create delivery document & do PGI based on the billing document later.

Scenario: During sales closing all the sales orders are punched in SAP. Users create delivery document, do PGI and create billing document. By doing this they acheive their sales targets but they keep on despatching the materials for another 5-7 days. So real time inventory is not available in system. Since PGI is already done , stock is already reduced in SAP but physically available at the warehouse.

Our client wants that they will create sales orders and create billing document immediately. But they will despatch the material after few days and that time they will create delivery and do PGI.

Is this possible. Kindly revert.

    Hi,

    It's possible to create a billing document directly w.r.t. sales order. In case of Credit Memo Request & Credit Memo, we use this.

    But not in your requirement.

    You cannot do PGI based on the billing documents.

    If you look at system behavior, SAP goes by copy control rules. There is no such copy control from Billing to Delivery available.

    Therefore your requirement is not possible in SAP.

    Best regards,

    Anupa

    In VTFL for the item category, against the field Copying requirements, maintain routine 11. This will allow to generate billing before doing PGI.

    thanks

    Dear Sagar

    Before setting out on such an expedition, can you pl clarify the following :

    Scenario 1

    Available Stocks are less than the Total Billed Quantity, as there is no availability check possible when you are billing with ref to the sales order.

    What will you do ? Will you reverse the Invoices ?

    Scenario 2

    During period end assume that you have only billed and released to accounts, Revenue will be booked without adjusting the cost of Goods sold, which would be wrong reporting.

    Though it would be technically possible, it is advisable to follow the process of Delivery and then Billing.

    regards

    Hello,

    it is not possible to create a delivery with reference to a billing document.

    It is possible to create a sales order and billing document, then create the delivery with reference to sales order, and GI.

    To get this, is necessary to set an item category with billing relevance order-related (example B) in transaction VOV7, and relevant for delivery.

    BR,

    Ivano.
