ERP invoice with reference to SRM Basic Contract?

Hi

In SAP SRM you can create a shopping cart or a PO with reference to a SRM Basic Contract by setting the item number to 0 like: 4700000107/0

But with the new Ehp1 SAP states that ERP invoices can be created with reference to a SRM central contract (via SRM_SERVICE_PROC_1). But can you create the invoice with reference to contract item 0?

The idea is to have the non PO related invoices registrered on the basic contract in SRM along with the PO's. A basic contract can't be copied to ERP, as there is no lines on it, but is the ERP contract copy needed for this scenario?

So two questions:

- is the ERP contract copy from SRM needed to use the Ehp1 functionality of creating invoices with reference to a SRM contract?

- can the ERP invoice be created with reference to a basic SRM contract by giving the contract item as 0 or in another way?

    Hi,

    It's very much possible to create SRM Invoice from SRM Contract. I have done it in SRM ECS Scenario.

    Now you only can create ERP Invoice if you have copy of SRM Contract in ERP.

    Hello,

    With SRM 70 EHP1 you can create ERP invoice against your SRM Central Contract distributed to ERP.

    To enable this you need to do few settings in ERP, for the same you can refer to the config guides available at Service market place for SRM701 releases.

    Configuring Contract Handling for Invoices : You use this procedure to configure contract handling for invoices in the SAP ERP system. You have activated the Procurement - SRM Integration 2 (LOG_MM_P2PSE_2) business function in the SAP ERP system.

    Steps :

    1. In Customizing for SAP ERP, perform the activity under : Materials Management -- Logistics Invoice Verification -- Incoming Invoice -- Activate Direct Posting to Contracts , to allow direct references to contracts when creating invoices and parking documents.

    2. In Customizing for SAP ERP, perform the activity under : Materials Management -- Logistics Invoice Verification -- Invoice Block -- Set Tolerance Limits , to set the tolerance key for contracts (PC: Price variance for contract).

    The feature is termed as Invoice Reconciliation here.

    Best Regards,

    Rahul
