Same invoice linked with 2 orders belonging to diff sales org


I have a 3rd party sceanrio where there is a third party sales order, then a Purchase order and then GR. through GR, invoice will be created.

I have a problem with a specific invoice.

where same invoice no is linked to sales orders which are not related to each other.

so VBFA is having incorrect entries.

I can correct the same by table level corrections in VBFA but trying to undestand how can this happen.

Any thoughts, pl share

Hi TW and George,

To let you know, i have made corrections at table level but root cause is still missing.

I found one sapnote no. 1080954 for the issue.

As per the note,

These problems occur occasionally and sporadically. In general, a cause cannot be determined.

In some cases, incorrect document flow records occur as a side effect of other database

inconsistencies between order documents and purchase order documents for third-party order

processing or individual purchase order processing.

If it is not possible to determine the cause of the problem, the only way to solve the problem is to

delete the VBFA entries that represent a reference between the order item and the purchase order

item that is incorrect or that does not exist.

So i believe there cannot be any RCA.

Still if anyone can give any random ideas, pl do.

thanks and regards,
