Manually Match Goods Receipt to Supplier Invoice

This document explains how you manually match arrived goods to the supplier invoice line to which the goods refer.

You do this when the supplier invoice has been matched to the purchase order before the goods arrived, and the automatic matching function is not used.


The goods receipt line is matched to the invoice and a message with the result of the matching is displayed.

If the matching is approved, you create account entries by pressing F10='Crt acc entry'.

If the matching is incomplete, you adjust the invoice, for example by creating a debit note. Refer to Verify and Adjust Invoice Lines for Invoice Matching. If necessary, you can manually close the incompletely matched invoice line by selecting option 20='?'.

A new invoice line (type 4) is created with the data from the original invoice line (type 2) that was matched to the purchase order line to which the goods receipt refers. The quantity of the new invoice line is set to either the quantity of the original invoice line or the quantity of the goods receipt.

If the matching is approved, the invoice line (type 2) is updated with the receipt quantity and cost amount.
