In our client site we run the mass invoicing every quarter for the periodic billing for various contracts.
Requirement is :
Now without going into any development, with standard SAP method, can we achieve this ? In VF04 I know we can do it, but I want more information on this.
If any one have any such experience, please share
True...you are expecting entries (for ZSRT) in VF04 and they are missing. It means there will be some reason for not being part of the billing due list. Since these contracts are not allowed for billing (that means due to some reason they cannot be billed)...if you try to create an invoice through VF01...when you input the contract and click enter...if this contract is not eligible for billing, then the system will show the details in the log...for the reasons (eg: the contract is blocked for billing) due to which the billing document couldn't be created.
If memory serves, VF04 actually uses very simple criteria. It basically checks the billing status (in this case VF04 must be run with 'Order-related' checkbox and, accordingly 'Order-related billing' status will be checked). The status may be viewed in the contract line items (Status tab). It also checks the billing date (check the billing plan) and any other additional criteria, if entered.
If you run VF04 with no additional criteria and it does not find the documents when they have status A or B and matching billing date - that would be rather strange.
But no right reply
It is because, you have not explained your requirement CORRECTLY. See how you have started your query and check the suggestions given by members and how you were deviating from your original query. Better try to explain CLEARLY what assistance you need from this forum.
As Lakshmipathi suggested, yes I agree.
My only problem is in VF04, I am not getting any documents populated for invoicing although in development server I created about 5 contracts. I did invoicing for 2 with vf01 and the result is all ok.
now when I want to do mass billing for 3 invoices in vf04 why these pending documents are not popping up. where is the problem.
I think now I am clear .
Can any one out there to help. Sir.. you also
I did invoicing for 2 with vf01 and the result is all ok.
When I asked you to check the creation of invoice through VF01...it seems you have tried it...but didn't post the outcome here. It is an investigative issue and unless you update the members properly, the investigation may not progress in the right direction.
Do the contracts meet the selection criteria entered in VF04? (Billing date, Sales Org, any other fields entered in VF04.) Do they have 'Order-related billing status' A or B?
VF01 might pull everything that is due for billing while in VF04 additional selection criteria applies.
Otherwise ask for help from an ABAPer. Perhaps they could run a SQL trace (ST05) and see how the data is pulled exactly.
