Thanks for ur prompt reply..

I have checked all the configuration and every thing is fine.

To elobarate the issue further, while creating the shipment cost by tcode vi01, If I fill the fields of shipment number and settlement date as first of this month it is transferring the item which shows by giving check (Transfer indicator). At the same time if I give the date as 2nd or any other later date it is not "checking" the transfer indicator which transfers to service acceptance.

Secondly, in the shipment cost document the purchase order field is empty (in the service procurement tab).

Could any one please look in to this

Thanking you advancely.
