MIRO - Block for Payment - Reason

Hi All,

Subsequent to Payment Block discussion had in QM forum Block the payment if inspection lot is not cleared by quality i am facing the below issue.

I activated QM Proc with control key 0007 (Invoice Block) for 01 inspection type material. As displayed below there are two invoice documents.

Invoice doc - 5060001005 is quality lot cleared and 5060001006 is quality lot rejected. When MIRO is executed system is displaying "Block for Payment" in both the cases. In MRBR reason is displayed as Blocked Reason Quality and Blocked Reason Date Icon for both the cases. If quality is cleared then Payment Block for Quality Icon should not come as per SAP Help. Please guide which config in MIRO is missed and causing this issue. (Date block i can clear through config in OMR6 by setting do not check for Tolerance key(ST))

Thanks & Regards,

Ramagiri

Hi,

   In addition to Mr. Jurgen's comment, you may refer the KBA: 1879336 - MRBR - Automatic release not working for quality inspection

Hi AKPT,

Thanks for the SAP note. It really helped me to fix this issue. If PO is with GR-Based IV flag - Case1 - If inspection lot is cleared it will not go for Block for Payment and Case 2 - If Inspection lot is not cleared then it goes for Block for Payment. Currently i flagged GR-Based IV flag and issue got resolved. Thanks for your inputs.

Thanks & Regards,

Ramagiri

If you have creation QM procedure later you have to clear manually in QM. Then only be able to clear from QM. Do the invoice clearance as Jurgen said.

To check whether your material is blocked, run QA32, there material with detail should shown .

Your invoice had been blocked for payment as you had captured it when the material was still not QM cleared. Once it got QM cleared, the blocking reason becomes automatically invalid. However, the invoice block is not removed automatically, report MRBR has be run as Jurgen has pointed out with 'Release Automatically'.

To automate this process, you can run MRBR in a nightly batch job with 'Release Automatically' ticked in a variant and this will release all invoices for which the blocking reason is no longer valid. This is what we generally suggest to our clients.

The block is not removed by itself when the inspection lot was cleared.

you have to run MRBR with the radio button at release automatically.

See the F1 field help for release automatically.

The very last sentence in the help window actually says this:

The blocking reason no longer applies and is deleted when the system automatically releases invoices.

Hi Jurgen,

Thanks for your inputs. But still i am not clear.

Case 1: Quality inspection lot -UD is done and qty moved to unrestricted and then MIRO invoice is done. System is displaying "Block for Payment"

Case 2: Quality inspection lot -UD is done and qty moved to blocked stock and then MIRO invoice is done. System is displaying "Block for Payment"

Case 2 is acceptable but Case 1 should not happen as per SAP Help as given below.

Thanks & Regards,

The indicator does not vanish by itself, in no case.

Just create a selection variant for MRBR transaction and automatic release.

Schedule it as background job  to run in the night before you do the payment run and you can feel like it has vanished by itself when you check MRBR online before the payment run.
