    Hello,

    In your last post, what do you mean by difference in delivery and the credit memo?

    As per understanding, the only difference here is the price conditions, since there might be changes on the material prices which has been delivered before and the new price considered during the creation of credit memo, all you have to do is to edit the price conditions during VA01 (order type RE) with reference to the original invoice. This is to ensure that the original invoice value for the previous delivery matched the value of the credit memo. However, if price conditions cannot be altered durin CM creation, let your FI team / accounting personnel do the reconciliation ( for the price difference) thru direct FI posting.

    Thanks, hope this helps.

    Hi

    It is not clear what differences you are refering to. I feel that the delivey quantities are not physically delivered and hence the differences between delivery and invoice. You can check the billing due list at transaction code VF04 and see which are the items that are yet to be invoiced after the delivery is created.

    If not, then let me answer it the otherway round. The differences should not come if the order-to-cash cycle is properly followed. Please note that u must tell the customer clearly that the difference is because the standard business procedure is not followed. Stress on the business process re-engineering and try to implement standard business practice and do not allow them to take shortcuts if any. Customers always want high end automation and at the same time require all provisions for last minute manupulations. Stress that SAP is implemented to maintain disciplines in the organisations apart from automation.

    Regards

      Hi Monica

      If there are differences between outbound deliveries and credit memos, how should I proceed further on this.

      Thank you

    I understand that, the values for the delivered quantities are not yet reflecting in accounts(either invoices are not created or invoices created and not posted to accounts due to various reasons). The customers have sent back the stocks and the return delivery is done and the credit for returns created and values posted to accounts. This will show a difference in values.

    If the above process is correct,

    How do you create the returns order...is it with reference to Invoice or without any reference?

    Regards,

    Ravi

      Please check the posting status of those invoices. You can check that either in table VBRK for the field posting status or can check in VF03 for the accounting document details. If these invoices were not released to accounts, then goto VF02, key in the invoice number and click on the release icon (green flag). This should clear the differences.
