Business Area is not flowing to Billing Doc Line item


Since recently we have observed that in some billing document creation, the business area in sales order line item is not flowing to the billing document line item.

VBRP-GSBER remains blank due to which we face problem in J1IIN txn.

This is not happening in all the cases. There are very few instances where business area is becoming blank in billing document line item.

But when the same billing document is reversed and new billing document is created, the business area flows properly to billing document line item (in VBRP).

Can anybody suggest why such erratic behaviour? And how to resolve the issue?

Thanks and Regards

    Check the settings for business area determination at SPRO->Sales and Distribution ->Basic Functions ->Account assignment /Costing->Business Area Account Assignment -> Define Rules by Sales Area. Then check the material master/plant/sales area details in the sales order. Normally in the sales order itself, business area is determined and billing document copies it. If sales order does not contain this value, then the system tried to determine at the billing document based on the settings maintained in the above SPRO path. If the above settings are ok, then just try to debug the billing creation program to see whether any user exit is causing this issue. May be the coding in the user exit might have some bugs in it.
