Invoices created using VF04 need to be saved again using VF02 for geting ap


We have a business condition to create & print 200-250 invoices in a shortest time. For this I find option VF04 where I can create invoice as per delivery. But in using this option I just get the invoice numbers & to get the printout, I need ot use transaction VF02 & save individual document. After VF04 I can see that the output message for printing is attached but does not execute until I save the same using VF02.

Do you have a solution for this or else any one knows FM/BAPI for create & print the invoic. In program I have all delivery nos (which are to be converted in invoice).

    Have you never come across VF31 or VF06 ??. In fact, via VF06, you can schedule the billing document generation based on the time you set.

      Hi Lakshmipathi,

      VF31 works only when the output messages in billing doc are "Successfully processed" during billing creation. In VF31 there are options 1. First Processing, 2. Repeat Processing, 3. Error Processing (All), 4. Error Processing (Only New Messages) however there is no option to process the message.

      When we create the invoices using VF04 all the messages shows the sts as "not processed". For processing these messages, I need to save each individual billing doc using VF02. Which is time consuming job (when we talk about volume of 200 to 250 invoices within 30 min)

      VF06 is a background jobs for billing creation. First of all it doesn't show the list of deliveries & option to choose for invoicing (inshort from user prespective it is not user friendly/interactive). Secondly with this option also output message doesn't get processed. I need to save billing doc individually.
