3 way match w/ IR before GR

Former Member

hi gurus

Is it possible to have a 3 way matching in SAP where IR comes in before GR?

We get our vendor invoices as soon as the goods are shipped from the vendor location. So technically we get Invoices before we can do the GR.

Is is possible to park the IR (or post the IR in blocked status) until GR is posted and then do a 3 way match?

If yes, could you please advise how to proceed?

Thanks in advance

I believe it is standard functionality that when the invoice preceeds the goods receipt and assuming the PO and IR values are the same, SAP will block the IR based on quantity. When the GR is posted, the IR is automatically released for payment. However, the IR blocking reason can be manually removed in MRBR. Hope this helps.

Thanks Raghavendra and Paul. Also, I'd have to uncheck the GR based IV flag on the PO correct? Because when I'm trying to do a MIRO/MIR7, I get a message saying "No (suitable) item found for purchase order"

You are correct about the box for GR/IV. It will have to be unchecked to allow the IR to be posted before the GR.

hi,

Three way match means Sap system internally matches Po and Gr values while posting IR..

Now when you post IR before GR, system will not be able to find the GR values for comparing and will block the IR for qty reasons..

But this doesn't make sense because, you can't release the IR untill you post the GR...so better you go for GR first and then go for IR and complete the process on time....

If you post the IR before GR, then the cycle completes only after you post the GR and so GR is must...

@Priyanka - I'm leaning towards what Paul's saying. We will certainly have a GR, but we'd like to enter the IR first and keep it in blocked status until GR is posted. After GR, we'll run MRBR.

Hi,

yes it can be done .You can park/hold the invoice till the GR is made and post after the GR is made.
