Hi Experts,

                   I looked for the need of subsequent invoice processing tab in customer master: sales area: Billing tab. I searched for the previous answers regarding this and still in a confusing state.

I just want to know the exact use of the field, whether it is used to check only for printing out of manually posted invoice processing or to block the invoice to automatically release into accounting. And also is there any relation between this tab and the posting block tab in billing document configuration (VOFA)..?

Hi Rajesh

I have just tested this and came to know that this field is not working for blocking the posting of invoice to FI. In my opinion this field has no link with VOFA settings. In VOFA we can block automatic posting of invoice to FI but this field in customer master has nothing to do that. I have seen old threads on this and everyone has shared its F1 help which is not clear. If you test this by marking this field as checked it doesnt impact anything.

Please go through the note 354179 in which it is stated that in standard SAP this field has no functionality.

Even in my system it was suppressed and I displayed it through IMG. Still I am not sure why SAP has delivered a field which has no function

I am looking into it and will let you know if I find something new.

Hi Rajesh,

Which means the value is getting copied from customer master to the sales document. If the subsequent invoice processing is checked, you can also manually enter the data.

We normally maintain master records since we doesn't perform frequent changes to master data. So in case of some customer we can keep that sub. inv processing checked.

Thanks & Regards,

If you mark this field in customer master then in sale order header this will be marked by default and if you dont mark this in customer master then it wont be marked in sale order header and you need to mark it there manually.

And no this will not block posting of invoice to FI. For that VOFA settings need to be done.

Thanks MoazzaM, now I got it.. But either the field in customer master or in sale order header has no effects even if they are marked.. Which means this field has no functionality.. Am I right..?
