    Hello,

    AN: Amount for item without order reference

    If you activate the item amount check, the system checks every line item in

    an invoice with no order reference against the absolute upper limit define

    AP: Amount for item with order reference

    If you activate the item amount check, the system checks specific line item

    s in an invoice with order reference against the absolute upper limit defin

    ed. Which invoice items are checked depends on how you configure the item a

    mount check.

    The question is already answered in SDN,Please go through the links below:

    Hi Swetha,

    So, do you mean that AN & AP are the same as per the functionality wise. but only AP can allow further filter of the items as per the additional setting for item category?

    For example:

    Custo:

    AN: upper limit 100 EUR

    MIRO:

    IR: Item 1: Item category: "L" exceeds 100 EUR

    IR: Item 2: Item category: "Standard" exceeds 100 EUR

    Result:

    In this case system will block both items...

    Custo:

    AP: upper limit 100 EUR

    Item category: "standard"

    MIRO:

    IR: Item 1: Item category: "L" exceeds 100 EUR

    IR: Item 2: Item category: "Standard" exceeds 100 EUR

    Result:

    In this case system will block only item 2...

    Please confirm this...

    Thanks & Regards,

    Pushparaj S.

    Hi All,

    I am writing this for benefit of other, who want to know exact difference between Vendor invoice tolerance key AN & AP.

    Tolerance Key: AN

    Custo: Item amount check : Active Upper limt: 100 EUR

    There is a vendor invoice for 101 EUR for a material without reference to any document(PO/delivery/bill of ladding etc). When you are posting the item in MIRO to the material account directly, the item will be blocked for payment.

    Tolerance key: AP

    Custo: Item amount check : Active Upper limt: 100 EUR Item category: standard GR indicator : Inactive

    There is a vendor invoice for 101 EUR for a material reference to PO (for a "standard" item and without GR indicator in PO).

    When you are posting the item in the MIRO with reference to the PO, the item will be blocked for payment as per the customization.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks & Regards,

    Pushparaj S.
