Hi Experts,

I am emailing you in regards to an IR/GR issue that I am unable to fix. I have tried every which way I can think of and have asked others and we are unable to correct. An invoice for Vendor A was originally posted to PO 4500123456/shipment 50627607.
We were asked to process the invoice against another PO 4500511345/shipment 50627607 which I have done. I tried to process a charge back to the first PO and we are unable to due to there being nothing to process against. The transportation team is unable to add the lines back to process a charge back to the PO because the shipment # is now tied to PO 4500511345.. I have blocked PO 4500511345 from paying out since the invoice was already paid when it posted to original PO. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Experts,

I am facing the issue as below while working with SFTP to IDOC Pass through Scenario.

The messages are started sending to receiver R3 system and there it is getting delayed to post the IDOC messages.

IDOC_AAE receiver channel creates 120 IDOCs in SAP in 1 minute time with status-64 “IDoc ready to be passed to application”.

IDOC_AAE receiver channel keeps waiting for confirmation/acknowledgement from SAP.

IDOC_AAE receiver channel gets the confirmation/acknowledgement from SAP only once all the IDOCs gets completely posted in SAP with status 51 or 53. This is when SAP PO message status is changed to Delivered.

IDOC_AAE channel thread is blocked until the confirmation/acknowledgement is received from SAP and message is in delivering status (DLNG) for all the time.

Is there any way to resolve this waiting time?

Hi All,

I am facing a problem in webi report and description is mentioned below :

I am trying to add 2 objects in an existing universe with a join between them. While creating a webi report I am trying to add dimension from one object in result object pane and dimension from the other object in filter, it gives the following error: 

"A Filter is defined on an object that is incompatible with the object selected on the result objects pane. (WIS10702)". 

The join is proper, context is there, it is exported successfully to repository. And when I add dimension from both the objects and generate sql, it give two separate sqls rather that giving a proper one with join. 

On the other hand the same thing I am doing in new universe and and trying to create a webi document on top of the universe, there is no error and it generates proper sql with join between both objects. 

Looked through the internet for the problem but nowhere seems to this specific one. So any help will be much appreciated.

I want to know about code interface note in SAP.

Hello Everyone. I'm new to SAP. I have an issue that's been bugging me, if you could help, I would appreciate so much.

It's about the accruals G/L and Vendor accounts.

Let's say I have a minus balance on salary accruals g/l, which is due to the fact that the gross salary was posted on g/l but the payment was not done in the period. So the g/l was not cleared and now I have open items in the closed period and the balance is not zero.

Also, I have open items on vendors too as, let's say, the amount paid, but not cleared.

Opening that period and performing postings are not the option.

What can I do to post or at least clear the items in the closed period? Maybe Clear the documents with document date in the open period? Would that leave open items open? Or will they be cleared?

Also, if you suggest me something, please in a few words explain the internal audit perspective.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Dear SAP Expert.

Is there some customer master data avaible for specific texts on billing document?
