Commercial invoice based on Proforma invoice

Hi,

In case of POD scenario implemented at our client location we are creating Order --> Delivery --> proforma invoice --> Final invoice (With future posting date with reference to proforma to copy manually entered price conditions at proforma). --> VLPOD to hit COGS

Ideally the final invoice should get generated based after 601 movement type only. but here as we are creating final invoice with reference to proforma invoice we are able to generate the same before or after VLPOD i want to ask is there any way to block the final invoice generation without PGI even though the same is created with reference to proforma. Please suggest.

Thanks

Ashwini

    First of all, I would not recommend generating commercial invoice with reference to proforma. Always, it should be either in reference to a delivery or a sale order. You should be aware, you can generate en-number of proformas and having said that, how system should behave if users generated multiple proformas and against each proforma one commercial invoice. Did you test generating multiple proformas and against each proforma, one commercial invoice?

    Nevertheless, in copy control VTFL, assign routine 34 against "Copying Requirements" at item level. This will prevent generating commercial invoice if the preceding document is not PGId. But since you would not have maintained copy control between your delivery type and commercial invoice type, I dont think, this will work. You need to test and update here on the outcome.

    Thank you so much sir for your input. Yes i am aware that we can generate multiple proforma. We are not using that process now and finally client is got convinced for the same. THe reason why i need to do that is, client is not agreed to use shipment and shipment costing for BL charges as in Shipment costing the charges are not hitting to different GL's and if user enter the charges in invoice it will hit to respective GL's.

    can you please let me know how can the amount of different conditions will go in separate GL using shipment costing.

    Thanks
