Foreign Trade Incompletion in Billing Document

Gurus

I have two billing documents using the exact same incompletion procedure. One is export from Italy to US. Other is export from France to Switzerland.
Both of them missing commodity code. But one is released to accounting and other is not. Expected result is if billing document is missing foreign trade data like commodity code it should not be released to accounting. I checked VI29 and VI49 but both of these are same for these two documents. Only differences are the item categories are different. One of the document has statistical value populated while other one dont have it.
The VBRP- UVALL field is populated in one and in other its not. Do you know what config settings determines whether billing document should be released to accounting if foreign trade data is incomplete.

    Hi

    Please check in VI29 if in the Incompletion procedures: Document fields
    Origin field STAWN has been assigned "3". Then it checks the release of the
    billing document to accounting as it marks the field as "required".

    Please reward points if found helpful.

    Hi,

    Also check Transaction -VI49. If there are no entries, this incompletion procedure generally assigned to country. Check for the default settings to determine export data, using Transaction code -VI95.

    Read the following SAP note.

    Note 354222 - Foreign trade data incomplete for domestic business

    Summary

    Symptom
    A billing document cannot be transferred into accounting because the foreign trade data is incomplete.
    However, the underlying business process is a domestic business!


    Additional key words
    VF01, VF02, EIPO, EIKP, foreign trade, incompleteness, domestic, delivery, billing document, EXNUM, EXPKZ,export indicator, export number


    Cause and prerequisites
    In the respective delivery or in the billing document, for domestic business you by mistake go to the foreign trade data into a field. Since the incompletion log requires at least one entry for foreign trade, you must fill one field? in order to be able to leave the foreign trade data again without canceling document processing.
    Here, an export indicator and an export number is assigned which cause the incompleteness of the whole document due to missing export data.


    Solution
    A solution in the standard system is currently not planned since because of various customer requests the foreign trade data in the delivery should be accessed and maintained for domestic business too. An example is the inbound delivery in a bonded warehouse where the forwarding agent should get information already in advance.

    To avoid incorrect billing documents, proceed as follows:
    Copy data transport routine 001 to a routine 601 and enhance the new routine according to the attached correction instruction (RV60C601). Store this new data transport routine in Customizing for the copying control for billing documents for the processes you use, for example
    - F2 - LF, item category TAN.?? (delivery-related)

    If you already use an own data transport routine, in this data transport routine include the attached source code.

    You must cancel existing billing documents and then create them again.
    If you do not want to cancel existing documents, implement the attached correction (program RV60AFZZ) and release the documents either individually (VF02, default transaction) or via the list of blocked billing documents (VFX3).
    After you completed the correction, you should cancel this solution (RV60AFZZ) again.
    Also refer to the attached Note 170183.


    Thanks
