Logistics invoice verification with difference both in quantity and price

Good morning.

I need your help in order to understand how PO receipts and Invoice postings are made when i have difference in both the quantity and price between PO receipt and Invoice. SAP, in its document "Logistics Invoice Verification (MM-IV-LIV)", describes in pages 119 to 121 how these postings are made page119.jpg, page120.jpg, page121.jpg.

I do understand these examples. However, i run an example where i have difference in the price between the PO and the Invoice, i receive 5 items up front, post the invoice for 10 items and then i receive the remaining 5 items from the PO. I have no price difference between the material master (S-valuated material at 100 euros) and the PO, and finally, i receive all 10 items of the PO, so, i do not have quantity variance either. However, systems performs the same calculation as above. I also observe that i have difference in the the purchase order history postings (1005 in receipts against 1010 in Invoice).

I would be extremely grateful if someone could explain me why is this happening...I would expect that since the quantity is finally the same and i do not have price difference between PO and GR, that GR/IR postings in the second receipt would be 505 euros also so as to match the invoice price...po1.jpg, gr-initial-5.jpg, invoice1.jpg, gr-remaining-5.jpg

Best regards,

Nikos

If you cross check all your IR and GR document numbers- You can analyse to find your IR document created first after your PO creation!

Later two separate GR documents created resulting your accounting entries...

If you do not want quantity and price variance- Go for message numbers setting in transaction codes OMRM and OBMSG for M8-081 and M8-087 as error.

Good morning

My question is not about if I want quantity and price difference. My question is how this example works for quantity and price difference, because I do not think the result is correct.

Thank you very much
