In apps for importing sales documents (for example, Import Sales Orders), document creation may fail for some records. This can be caused by invalid data in your spreadsheet file, missing master data, or system errors. When an import contains errors, the creation status of some import items is "Failed" and the processing status of the related import is "Contains errors". As of SAP S/4HANA 2202.1, you can manually complete such imports or import items, if you don't want to continue with further processing.


In app Import Sales Documents, select an import. The import contains two import items, wherein document creation has succeeded for one items and failed for one item.

Branch to the import to view import details.

Choose the failed item and click the "Set as Completed" button. The creation status of the item and the processing status of the import change to "Manually Completed".


  • You can manually complete imports (on the list page) and import items (on the object page). Multi-selection is supported. This function only takes effect on imports that contain errors and failed import items.

  • When the creation status of an import item stays in “Scheduled” more than two hours, the system will change it to “Failed” automatically.
