EDI(IDOC) vendor invoices in SAP.



We are implementing EDI for vendor invoices. I would like to understand how other companies deal with the following requirements.

1) Audit requirements. If an auditor asks to see an invoice from the Vendor all we have is the IDOC. This is not easy to pull up by vendor number or invoice number. Moreover IDOCS are archived much earlier than the legal requirements for financial data retention.

2) Ability for end user to look at the source document to fix errors. One of the things that we want to do is park the document if the invoice amount do not match the PO amount. However, the user needs to look at the invoice data some how before acting on the parked invoice.

Any insights are appreciated.
