Would be great to have managed a flag named "Close without billing" in the "sales header" and in the "purchase header".

Because in some cases an order is partially shipped/invoiced to a customer, but you simply want to close it without posting the remaining part of the order.

We have always done it with some lines of code in the codeunit 80 and 90.

We have a complete Drop Shipment Extension for this,
PO is created and kept in sync with the SO automatically when releasing the SO.
Anyway, I would like to see the chance to UNDO a drop shipment!
Also, we need the posting of the Purchase Invoice before the Sales Invoice (that might be a monthly invoice, but PO needs to be paid within days.

In NAV we created a solution that creates a proforma- shipment report from the order and the real shipment is posted after receiving the weight note or the measurement report from the (tank) truck.
This is often needed where weights or volumes are not clear before shipment.
So after receiving the weight note or something similar, the order quantities are adjusted and there are only the real quantities posted for shipment and invioce.

If you do not ship the complete ordered quantites and you do not want to ship the rest, you may want to reduce the order quantities on posting shipment.
That might be a nice but dangerous solution if this is done on posting without any user interacation, because in case of an error, you loose the order and have no chance to recover the orirginal quantities.

That's what we need, is a very common business scenario:

https://answers.sap.com/questions/262847/how-to-close-open-sales-order-without-completing-d.html

Business Scenario
My client is in liquid gas sales. When they create sales order for 1000 Lts, and by the time it reaches the customer place, 1000 Lts becomes 900 Lts due to long transportation time. So client finally decided not to do PGI until the gas items reach customer place. Below is the process flow in SAP system:
SO (1000 Lts) - Delivery Creation (1000 Lts) - Customer Received (900 Lts) - Delivery Edition (900 Lts from 1000 Lts) - PGI (900 Lts) - Invoice (900 Lts).

In this case, sales order will always remains open. How to close such sales orders?
Do we need to create credit invoice with reference to sales order?
If yes, what is the configuration?
Else what is the best solution for this?
