Invoice blocking at header level

Former Member

Dear team,

Could you kindly provide your inputs for the following issue;

While posting invoice with MIRO with a different ( higher) price than PO price, price blocking is happening only at the item level. But user wants to know why it is not blocking at header level why it was happened only for Item level.

At what circumstances, header level will be blocked.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Madhav

Hi Madhav,

In your case, the system can determine that blocking is required only when the price in entered on MIRO. The system compares the price with PO price. So blocking will always be at line level, since price is entered at line level.

Header blocking means blocking the PO completely( by checking Final Invoice check) or by blocking the Vendor in master data from posting. Both these options are not suitable for your case. The blocking can only be handled at line level.

Hope this helps,

Thanks.

Hi Madhav,

SAP is very line item driven. Let's say the PO had more than one line item, one could be blocked just for price while the other is perfectly fine or perhaps it could be blocked for quantity. It just gives you more specifics as to why the invoice was blocked and for which line item. As far as I can tell, the only time an invoice is blocked at the header level is if you have turned on stochastic block. This is where you randomly check invoices. Stochastic blocks puts the R in the header level instead of at the line item.

Hope that helps,

Cindy
