Inter Company automatic vendor invoice error BSEG-MEINS

Hi there,

We do have a problem with automatic posting a vendor invoice. This invoice is generated via a IV billing document and I-DOC. We get an error that BSEG-MEINS does not exist in screen.

The IC process is Inter Company Sales, so no purchase order. If I run the BIM it seams to have the quantity and unit send to the posting transaction. Since there is no PO, this is wrong. For the time beeing we changed the field status group to optional and then no problem. But to my opinion the quantity and unit should not be tranferred to the posting transaction. Is this a bug? Can I influence this behavior with a user exit if it is not a bug?

    you should post the original error message, it does not help you and us to talk around a problem without naming it explicitly.

    • The errror message itselfs is as follows:

      Field BSEG-MEINS. does not exist in the screen SAPMF05A 0300

      Message number 00349.

      I read some posts about this problem. Most of them were solved by making the quantity section of the field selection of the G/L account optional instead of suppressed.

      I did take a look what is happening after setting OBCE on Batch Input, so the transaction (FB01) runs in the foreground. It tries to enter only the quantity and unit of measure oin the purchase order line of this screen. Because there is no purchase order in this process (IC BIlling) this should not happen. To my opinion the complete purchase order line should not be filled. Of course I can make the quantity section to optional but that is ignoring the "bug" and due to the fact that this G/L account is used often it might have effect on other postings as well.

      So the question is how can we avoid in this situation that the quantity and unit of measure is sent to the transaction?

      Regards Kees
