Assign invoice list type to each billing type

Using the invoice list , you can group together several billing documents or several invoices at the end of a period specified in the customer master to form a new document. The invoice list is sent to and settled by a common payer.

Billing documents,which can be individual or collective invoices, form the basis for an invoice list. A separate billing index is created for them.

In this menu option, you specify for each billing type the invoice list type with which the invoice lists should be created.

Default settings

1. In the standard version of the SAP R/3 System, two new condition types were created for the invoice list:
2. Two types of invoice lists were created in the standard version:
3. For output determination in the invoice list, two new condition types were created:
4. For output determination in the invoice list, two new output determination procedures were created:

To be able to group together billing documents in invoice lists, certain data in the documents must match. This data is checked using the copying requirements. Copying requirement '16' is used in the standard version.

Actions

The invoice list is controlled using the condition technique. A separate output determination is carried out for the invoice list which is also controlled using the condition technique. Check first whether the configuration contained in the standard version is sufficient for the condition technique. If you want to make company-specific modifications or use your own condition components, you must carry out the following steps:

1. Create a condition type.
2. Create an access sequence.
3. Create a condition table.
4. Create a pricing procedure.
5. Specify for each billing type the invoice list type with which the invoice lists should be created. Enter this on the detail screen of a billing type in the field "Invoice list category".

If you make changes in the output determination, you must maintain the same elements of the condition technique analogously to the invoice list:

1. Create a condition type.
2. Create an access sequence.
3. Create a condition table.
4. Create a pricing procedure.
5. Allocate the output type and the output determination procedure to the respective billing types.

Note

Billing types which should be used in the invoice list must be configured accordingly on the detail screen in Customizing, regardless of whether you make changes to the condition technique, or whether you work with the configurations of the standard version.
