Hi Raskin

Normally, the system tries to bill several sales documents with one billing document but it can also create several billing documents, for example, when sales documents have different payers or terms of payment.

Whether and how sales documents are combined or split depends on copying control. Your system administrator is responsible for these settings in Customizing.

You can use split analysis to review why the system has split a billing document. It compares two billing documents and lists the fields which have differing contents.

You can call up the Split analysis function with the following transactions:

  • Billing document

--> Change or Display. Billing document

  • Billing document

--> Billing due list

To display the split analysis for one of these screens, proceed as follows:

1. Enter the number of the first billing document that you wish to compare.

2. Choose Environment

--> Split analysis.

Enter the number of the second billing document which you wish to compare to the first in the dialog box.

3. Enter the billing document number and choose Continue.

The system displays the Billing document split analysis log. It is made up of three parts. The first shows the header partners and header fields which are different in the two documents while the second and third columns show the respective values for these fields.

This provides you with a clear overview of which fields have differing contents, the information available, and why there was an invoice split.

Thanks

Hi Raskin,

The reason for invoice split is different payers and Different payment terms at the header level and item level.

If this is the case invoice cannot be combine any way.

You can even look for the analysis as given above>>

Enter the Billling Document in [VF03] -> Using the Standard Menu bar select Environment -> Split Analysis -> Enter the other billing document number.

Fields causing a Invoice split are displayed in the split analysis.

Invoice split can be a result of the business need you said . e.g. creating 2 invoices for collecting later.

There are system customizing needs which drive the split in SAP mostly, which could be

- Separation based on material group or profit center.

- If the header partners or data in the header fields are not identical, the system will automatically perform an invoice split.

- All header partners and header fields in the billing document can cause an invoice split

Different payment terms can cause split or a manual change of pmt terms which can connect to example of a business need given by you above.

Thanks

B. Control of the document flow.

C. Control of the billing log.
