qty in debit and credit notes

Post by Guest » Thu Dec 29, 2005 7:40 am

Dear Sapfans,

when we create credit or debit notes we have to give qty and material but in cases where we need only debit or credit the customer by a certain amount the qtyin credit and debit note distorts the report,


suppose there are three invoices totaling an amount usd 10000

qty sold 30 pcs

Now we issue a credit note for usd 500,here we have to enter a certain qty,we use a manual condition and give a credit of amount usd 500,however we have to enter a qty say 1 pc

the reports will show (after including this credit memo) total sales as usd

9500 which is right but the sales qty becomes 29 which is incorrect.

Can anyone suggest how to get around this problem.

Are you using a standard SD SIS structure report? If you are, then check your order type configuration for the update category assigned to your document type. You may want to set this to a "do not update" setting.

If you are using a ABAP written report, you can have a programmer exclude your document types.

Good luck!

thanks tracie for your reply,

The problem is that I want the value from the document but not the qty therefore I dont want to exclude the doc type credit or debit memo from the report

I see. I don't know what the solution is then. Can you set up your credit note to not require a quantity? I have no idea if this will even work.

Suggestions, anyone else?

Maybe a custom report is needed?

Yes,I want to set up my credit and debit memos not to include qty but that is I want to know how to do it.

Then you should use the invoice correction sales doc type wherein you can edit the amount in the scong line item.


Credit Note /Debit Note for Value

Hi all,

SAP has given a process to handle this senario.
there are two order types given in SD,

G2WT & L2WT for Value based credit/Debit Adjustments.

This will not flow Qty / cost to any further reports / documents

Pls Try this
