Hi Aditya

I think your requirement is to check the output for all the data, before billing, whether it is coming correctly or not, if it is so, then my suggestion is to use Performa Invoice (F5 or F8) concept and check the output of the same and if the output of performa invoice is OK, then create the actual invoice.

Hope this will resolve your issue.

We may not be able to see the Preview before saving the doc. So the possiblity of seeing the Preview in VF01 is virtually nil. But even in VF02 the preview can be seen only after the Output type is processed. So please configure the output type in such a way that it is processed immediately once the doc is saved.

Hope this helps.

You can configure the Output condition type in VV31 for Dispatch time as ' 3' - send with application own transaction.

And in communication there is option for Print immediately and Release after output. check the Second check box for Release after output.

Means once the document is created and saved, then when print is issued only it will print, then before issuing print, you can check the print preview. if everything is fine then you can click on Print.

Hope this helps...
