Re: Supplier return and invoicing

I agree with you that this is a gap in v9. My understanding is that the flow should be as follow:
The "Reverse" button appears while you have not yet entered the supplier invoice. If you reverse / return quantities, they should be deducted from the delivered quantity.
Once you have entered the supplier invoice, there should be no option to reverse, and you should create a separate returns process.

Note that a separate returns process should involve the use of a Return PO, that generates a Delivery Order and a supplier refund. SAP ECC has this process exactly for this purposes.

I used to be able, since v5 at least to return a product to my supplier by clicking a button called "Return" in the incoming shipment and have the possibility to select the invoicing so that I could create a credit note linked to my supplier.
This way I knew that my supplier would eventually send me a credit note and/or the missing product and the return physical move and invoicing were somehow under control.

In v9, I have the possibility to return the product (via a button called "Reverse" which is a little bit weird in this case) but I am never given the possibility to chose the invoicing type.
When I create the invoice to my supplier, selecting the PO number, the "reversed" moves are not deducted from the total quantity delivered.

Did somebody achieve what I am trying to do which is return product to my supplier and have it under control in my invoicing?

Any pointer would be welcome
