blocking repeatation of proforma invoice
Scenario:Export sales:-The proforma invoice is created with reference to delivery,and for creation of excise invoice,transaction j1iin-the excise invoice is created with reference to proforma invoice
Issue:There is a repeated number of proforma invoice which is created with reference to delivery,and thus the repeated number of excise invoice is getting created with reference to the proforma invoices,for a single delivery.
The client has asked to address the problem in such a way that the user will be not allowed to create excise invoice more than ones and the system should throw error message that excise invoice is all ready created with respect to the proforma invoice and should block it for creating the excise invoice with reference to the proforma invoice for which excise invoice is already created.
So,far my understanding goes if i could restrict the user to create only one proforma invoice with respect to delivery(saidone),automatically only one excise invoice will be created with reference to the respective proforma invoice and the system should indicate some message that the excise invoice is created with reference to the proforma invoice and that it can not be processed further.
please guide me whether i have to use any user exit,and if so ,the name of exit and where in the user exit the exact information has to be written to make it work.Also what specs should i give to the ABAPER,
Also tell me if there is any other way out.
Thanks in advance,Regards anshuman

When there are multiple proforma invoices for single delivery you can create excise invoice for any one of the proforma invoices. I dont think system will allow creation of excise invoice for all the proforma invoices which refer the same delivery document.
In the copy control settings of your delivery type to proforma billing type, use copying requirement 311 for the item category. This will restrict creation of only one proforma invoice against the delivery document.
