Use this information to identify and resolve common types of price variances and quantity variances, which are collectively known as matching discrepancies. You can use the Pending vendor invoices list page to identify invoices that have been entered and saved, but that are not yet approved to be posted.

After you have identified the discrepancy, you might have to contact the vendor if you think that the information on the invoice is incorrect. Depending on the resulting agreement with the vendor, you can do any of the following tasks:

  • Accept the price difference and post the invoice with matching discrepancies.

  • Revise the invoice amount to the expected amount and post the invoice.

  • Request a full credit from the vendor and a new, corrected invoice.

Net unit price matching works with matching policies such as two-way matching or three-way matching. For more information, see About Accounts payable invoice matching.

A price variance exists if the invoice net unit price differs from the purchase order net unit price by an amount that exceeds the allowable price tolerance. The price variance might be because of different prices per unit, purchase price units, line item discounts, charges that are allocated to the invoice lines, quantities, or a combination of these factors.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendor invoices > Pending vendor invoices.

  2. Double-click a vendor invoice that has a corresponding purchase order. The Vendor invoice form opens.

  3. On the Action Pane, click the Review tab, and then click Matching details.

  4. Select an invoice line for which a warning icon is displayed.

  5. Review the information in the Price field group.

  6. To accept the price difference and post the invoice with matching discrepancies, select the Approve posting with matching discrepancies check box, enter a comment, and then click OK.

    NoteNote

    If the Post invoice with discrepancies field in the Accounts payable parameters form is set to Allow with warning, these fields are not available and you can skip this step.

  7. To revise the invoice amount to the expected amount, change the amounts in the Invoice column to match the amounts in the Purchase order column, and then close the form.

  8. In the Vendor invoice form, on the Vendor invoice header FastTab, clear the On hold check box in the Invoice status details field group.

  9. On the Action Pane, click Post. In the Select the posting settings dialog box, select print settings, and then click Post.

    NoteNote

    Alternatively, you can submit the invoice to be posted by using batch processing.

If the Receiving requirements check box is selected for the inventory model group for an item, a product receipt must be posted before an invoice can be posted for the corresponding line item. Also, the value in the Quantity field on the product receipt line must equal the value in the Quantity field on the invoice line.

  2. Double-click a vendor invoice that has a corresponding purchase order. The Vendor invoice form opens.

In the Match product receipts to invoice form, select a different product receipt that has the correct quantity for the invoice line, and then close the form.
