Invoice split with same document type

Hi Experts,

Kindly suggest on following issue:-

Currently we are using two billing types ZBBL for division 11 & ZDBL for division 12.

Whenever we do invoice with billing type ZBBL(manual entry) with reference to delivery for 12, system gives error message i.e. ZBBL can not be processed with division 12 & vice versa. This is OK .

But if we do VF01 for two delivery document one with division 11 & other with division 12-billing document ZBBL(manual entry) , system splits the invoces. It create two invoices. Again its a standard process.

So my problem is system is creating two different invoices , one for division 11 & other for 12-but with same billing type.

How can I make setting so that if system splits into two invoices ,it should create one invoice with ZBBL & other with ZDBL.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

    There can be many reasons why your invoices with same sales area are getting split. It many based on:

    - Billing type

    - Billing date

    - Payer

    - Billing unit

    - Terms of payment

    - Incoterms

    - Letter of credit

    Further, if you want analysis, on what bases system is splitting these in invoice. Try following steps:

    - Try using Tcode VF04. Opt for delivery related billing.

    - Select the desired delivery docs in Billing due list. (Press Ctrl Key from keyboard to select multiple lines).

    - Then click on simulation button.

    - Billing Doc Simulate: Billing Doc Overview Screen

    - Select all lines.

    - There first go for Logs, by pressing Log button.

    - If log is fine then, click on Split Analysis button to get split analysis.

    For further reference on Invoice split. Refer SAP Note 11162 - Invoice split criteria in billing document

    So, how to handle this?

    Based on the split analysis amend your copying control for Delivery to Billing in TCode VTFL.

    There many be a possibility that you might need to create customized routine with help of a tech consultant to suffice your requirement.

    Also, refer link - for reference/understanding.

    Then to combine the billing. Follow following steps:

    1. Use Tcode VF04. Opt for delivery related billing.

    2. Select the desired delivery docs in Billing due list. (Press Ctrl Key from keyboard to select multiple lines).

    3. Then click on Collective Billing button.

    Hi JP,

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    But my issue is not about splitting-splitting happens because different sales area,costomer etc ,its ok with me.

    Please advise- two invoices are creating but with same billing type , as per my scenerio it should create two invoces with two different billing type.

    • Apologies for interpreting your requirement earlier.

      Option 1.

      2 different sales doc type & accordingly maintain allowed sales area for those. And also in sales doc type maintain default billing doc type. On creating billing doc through VF01/VF04,

      for division 11

      - Sales order ZOR1

      - Delv Doc LF

      - Billing doc - ZBBL

      for division 12

      - Sales order ZOR1

      - Delv Doc LF

      - Billing doc - ZDBL

      Option 2.

      One sales doc type & delivery doc type. There is neither standard solution nor any standard copying control routine for this.

      So, in copying control VTFL in header, customize a routine with help of ABAPer. Provide you logic where create two invoices with two different billing type for 2 different division. By when your are creating sales invoice with specfic billing doc type with different the system will not,

      for division 12

      - Sales order OR

      - Delv Doc LF

      - Billing doc - ZBBL

      Copying control in VTFL based on enhanced routine in header will lead the user to error

      for division 11

      - Sales order OR

      - Delv Doc LF

      - Billing doc - ZDBL

      Copying control in VTFL based on enhanced routine in header will lead the user to error

      Regards
