Combine Receipts on a Single Invoice

If you want to invoice more than one purchase receipt at a time, you can select multiple receipt lines on the purchase invoice.

Before you can create a combined purchase receipt, more than one receipt from the same vendor in the same currency must be posted. In other words, you must have filled in two or more purchase orders and posted them as received, but not invoiced.

When purchase receipts are combined on an invoice and posted, then a posted purchase invoice is created for the invoiced lines. The Quantity Invoiced field on the originating purchase order, or blanket purchase order, is updated based on the invoiced quantity. However, this original purchase document is not deleted, even if it has been fully received and invoiced, and you must therefore delete the purchase document.


The resulting purchase invoice cannot later be corrected or cancelled. If you want to modify a purchase invoice that is created in this way, you must use purchase credit memos. For more information, see Correct or Cancel Unpaid Purchase Invoices.
