accounts payable invoices (fv50) - duplicate invoices hard warning

Currently we only receive a soft warning when we try to enter a duplicate invoice. Is there a way to reconfigure to make the warning a hard warning that can be overwritten it necessary. We are running ECC 6.0.

    H Jon,

    In FI, if the field 'Chk double inv.' is marked in your vendor account, the message F5117 - check whether invoice was already entered with number ...." appears if an invoice is created before with the same information (comp. code, vendor, curr, doc date (inv date), and ref number). This is the standard functionality.

    Please note that the following fields must be identical for error message F5117 (duplicate invoice) to occur:

    Company code (BUKRS)

    Vendor number (LIFNR)

    Currency (WAERS)

    Reference number (XBLNR)

    Amount in document currency (WRBTR)

    Document date (BLDAT) <<<<<<<<<<<

    If the document date is different using the same invoice number, the system does not consider it a duplicate invoice.

    Please let me know if the document date of the duplicated invoices are the same. If not, unfortunately this is the way system works.

    Best Regards,
