Delivery Note and Inbound delivery are one and the same.
Based on the Shipping Notification received from the Vendor we create Inbound delivery in the system.
Delivery note contains the Qty despatched by the Vendor.
Pro-forma Invoice is a concept used in Sales and is similar to a billing document.
A delivery note is the document that comes along with the actual goods delivery. This contains the details regarding the qty , packing list etc.
The delivery note number is the vendors document & hence is unique .
Ref to SAP, delivery note number ( being unique) can be used as a reference at the time of GR .
Practically , in a single consignment , against a single delivery note the vendor sends goods for more than one PO.
Subsequently , the vendor will send the invoice for the delivery made .
If the delivery note number is mentioned in GR , then the same number can be used as a reference to make an invoice verification , which would make things very smooth.
