First you check the requirement type in the order VA03 --> Overview screen --> Procurement tab --> check the requirement class for the line item.

Check, IMG u2013 Controlling u2013 Product Cost Controlling u2013 Control of sales order related production / prod. Cost by sales order u2013 Check Requirement class.

Check the requirement class from here. Remove all data from the Costing and Account Assignement tabs and save. It will be useful if you take the screenshot of the earlier setting, it will be helpful for you to revert back the config whenever you want.

Try to generate the billing document and let us know whether it worked?
