How to create a supplier invoice with reference to purchase order with enhanced limit items

Assume the following example:

Purchase Order 4500007883 contains 2 enhanced limit items.

Posting Date 10/31/2019 is outside the range between start date and end date of item 10.

You want to post an Invoice against item 4500007883 20.


Entering the Purchase Order reference to Purchase Order 4500007883 results in error message ‘M8 297’.

„Blanket purchase order 4500007883 00010: validity (20191017 – 20191027) not complied with“

To reach your goal to post against item 4500007883 20 you can proceed like this:

Make sure the Purchase Order reference field is empty and press the ‘Assignment Options’ button.



Enter Purchase Order ID and Purchase Order Item number and press ‘Assign’.


A line item with reference to Purchase Order Item 20 is created.

Please note: The item is not checked, so you have to check it and to enter an amount in order to consider the item in posting.


Pressing the ‘Check’ button will check the amount of the invoice and issue a message in case it is too high.
