Billing Error VF072 - Foreign Trade Data Incomplete

Hello All,

I am receiving the following error when completing billing:


Document 90XXXXXXXX has been saved (foreign trade data incomplete)

Message no. VF072


The billing document you have edited contains foreign trade data. These are however not complete.

This means that the document cannot be transferred to accounting (FI).

System Response

The system issues a message.


Maintain the incomplete foreign trade


I have not maintained any foreign trade data on the material and currently we are not utilizing this module at all. Is there any way to disable this message? Can anybody help explain why we are receiving the error?

Thanks for your help.

    Dear Friend,

    If you have not maintained Foreigh Trade Customization Settings, nevermind.

    You can enter these details in the Invoice itself.

    Go to VF02, enter the iNvoice number.

    Go to Header Details - ForTrade/Customs Tab. Here maintain necesary data like Mode of Transport, Domestic Mode of Transport, Geography, etc...

    Also Maintain relevant Details in Item Details - ForTrade/Customs Tab.

    Save the Invoice & try to post if... I am sure your issue will get solved...

    Hope this helps...

    This standard billing incompletion Log

    To avoid this do the following customizing

    1. IMG>Sales&distribution>Foreign Trade/customs>Basic Data for Foreign Trade>Define Business Types and default value

    2. IMG>Sales&distribution>Foreign Trade/customs>Transportation data>Default values for Foreign Trade Header Data

    3. IMG>Sales&distribution>Foreign Trade/customs>Control Foreign Trade in MM and SD Documents>Incompletness schemas for foreign trade data

    In this setting you have to make Foreign Trade Inactive for the feilds

    Do all the above setting and confirm

      Para resolver el incidente debes dirigirte a IMG.

      IMG/comercial/Comercio Exterior Aduana/ Datos de transporte/Definir puestos aduaneros

      IMG/Comercial/Comercio Exterior Aduana/Datos de transporte/Definir modos de transporte.

      Luego ingresas a la VF02 e ingresas información en ambos campos de la pestaña com. ext/ aduana.

      Al grabar el documento se contabilizará.

      Espero haberte ayudado.
