Payment Block in MIRO
I have posted the MIRO invoice before posting the MIGO entry. System has blocked the invoice for payment,
When I do the MRBR after posting the GR entry, system is removed the payment block before doing the quality inspection.
Actually, sytsem should update the quality block as well, but this is not happening. Could any one please help me is there any settings to get this.
Thanks & Regards,

It is only possible to automatically release invoices if their blocking
reasons are no longer valid. This can be the case for invoices blocked
due to quantity, price, or schedule variances, or due to quality
You can only use the function Release automatically for the blocking
procedure Blocked due to variances.
However, please note that if the 'GR-Based IV' indicator is set in the
line item of the PO, the invoice can not be released automatically.
The reason behind this s that with GR-based IV the system only
makes checks against each individual goods receipt rather than
against the invoice as a whole. If you need to use GR-based IV, then the
invoice will have to be released manually in MRBR.
The standard behavior of the SAP R/3 system is:
If to the material the QM in procurement is active and in the QM control
key invoice block is active the invoice will be blocked for quality
reasons if there is still no usage decision for the inspection lot or if
the inspection lot is rejected.
The invoice itself will be blocked automatically, the Payment Block Key
will be set to R. The Blocking reason I is not visible in the invoice
and has nothing to do with the settings in OMR9.
As per the online documentation:
Quality Inspection (I)
If a material is defined as being relevant for quality management, goods
receipts for this material are posted to stock in quality inspection.
Invoices for the material are blocked until the inspection has been
If more than one goods receipt is posted for an order item, an
inspection is carried out for every goods receipt. In Invoice
Verification, the system reacts differently depending on whether
goods-receipt-based Invoice Verification is active:
Goods-receipt-based Invoice Verification is defined in the purchase
The invoice is blocked if the inspection has not been completed for the
Goods-receipt-based Invoice Verification is not defined in the purchase
The invoice is blocked if any goods receipts are still in quality
inspection. If an invoice is posted before the goods are received,
it cannot be blocked for quality inspection. <<<<<<
hope this helps
