It's not just those cases.  If you are returning products normally you will have credit note and invoice from supplier which must be represented faithfully. Shortcutting into a single document will create problems for most companies.

For Companies that receive ASN (Advance Shipping Notices) and Invoices in advance, they need the option to Invoice the ORIGINAL quantity, then create a credit note.


For them, invoicing LESS than what was originally sent won’t work.

This is what I was expecting indeed.

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
