Del related and order related billing on the same order - timing problem

Former Member

Hi,

In our repair process we need to bill out the loaner part (we put the money on the loaner line that gets shipped and create a delivery related billing document) as well as repaired material when that comes in, goes through the repair and gets shipped back to the customer. In billing the repair itself the money goes onto a special order related line (repQuo check box on the main repair line in the sales order entry).

The problem is that the billing due list shows the order related line due for billing after it is created. We are not supposed to bill the line until the repair is completed. The invoice actually never gets created, the log is output with the error stating that it cannot invoice before the repair is completed, but it still shows in VF04. If I put the order on bill block and filter out blocked orders in VF04, then I can't bill the delivery related loaner parts.

Any suggestions how to make VF04 not show the order related line until the repair is completed?

Thank you,

Sergiy

Hi There,

The only possiblity of you getting this error is.

In Sales doc, the Billing relevance is checked for Order and Delivery. Which will populates the Order / Delivery documents which are open.

You might need to go with a Zprocess to manage your process.

Ended up creating a saparate user status to be set by Customer Service for some lines that they don't want to invoice yet.

Then they can run a report based on that user status to see what is ready to be invoiced.

Check Billing Relevance of your I Cats(VOV7) and maintain them as per your requirement.

As that indicates what the basis for billing should be.

A: Delivery-related billing document - Billing is based on the outbound delivery. Billing status is only updated in the outbound delivery.

B: Relevant for order-related billing - status according to order quantity - Billing is based on the sales document. The requested delivery quantity determines the billing status.

C: Relevant for order-related billing - status according to target quantity - Billing is based on the sales document. The target quantity determines the billing status.

F: Order-related billing doc - status according to invoice quantity - Relevant for order-related billing documents based on the invoice receipt quantity (third-party business transaction). The system transfers the order into the billing due list only after the vendor invoice has been received and processed in the purchasing department. After the receipt of each invoice, a customer invoice is created for the quantity that appears on the vendor invoice. The order has status "Billed" until the next vendor invoice is received. Item category TAS (Third party item) is set up with billing relevance "F" in the standard system. This process can also be related to the quantity of goods receipt. You can make the control setting as to whether the invoice receipt quantity or the goods receipt quantity should be relevant for billing in the copy control for billing on the item level in the billing quantity field. (In Customizing, choose Sales and Distribution -> Billing -> Billing documents -> Maintain Copying Control for Billing Documents -> Copying Control: Delivery to Billing Document -> Item, then select an item category.)

G: Order-related billing of the delivery quantity - The order is relevant for billing. More specifically, the cumulative delivery quantity that was already delivered is relevant for billing. You can use this category to bill for multiple partial deliveries at once.

H: Delivery-related billing - no zero quantities - You can use this category to avoid items with a value of zero being included in the billing document.

K: Delivery-related invoices for partial quantity - You can use this indicator if you want to select both items and partial quantities for billing.

Hope this can assist you in understanding.

Thanks & Regards

Thanks J Prakash,

I already have a requirement, part of the order is delivery related billing and part is order related. We should be able to bill delivery related billing right away and wait for the repair process to finish to bill the order related. My question is how to show delivery related one in billing due list and not show order related when they generate other order related billing docs.
