It is common for our clients to request the ability to enter vendor invoices against projects using the Open in Excel experience. This is because a vendor invoice can have hundreds of lines which all need to be coded to different projects. However, this functionality is not available in the product. Consider these facts: • The Vendor Invoice Journal (standard UI) does not support Intercompany Project Transactions at all • The Vendor Invoice Journal OData template does not support use of the Account Type = Project • The Project Expense Journal (standard UI) does not support Intercompany Project Transactions at all • The Project Expense Journal OData template does not support Intercompany Project Transactions because of the point above • The Vendor Invoice OData template does not support Projects because it does not include the related table VendInvoiceInfoLine_Project just like it doesn’t support Fixed Assets because it does not include the related table VendInvoiceInfoLine_Asset. So, in conclusion, • The customer cannot NOT use the Vendor Invoice Journal for any vendor invoice data entry (AP > Invoices > Invoice Journal). • The customer must use the Vendor Invoice (AP > Invoices > Pending vendor invoices) for all project expenses that originate from a vendor invoice, however, these must be entered manually. • The customer can use the Project Expense Journal if they desire for non-intercompany project expenses when there is a benefit due to large volumes of data. We would simply like to ask Microsoft to add the VendInvoiceInfoLine_Project to the datasource in the Vendor Invoice Line data entity. Ideally, this data entity should support all related child tables including the VendInvoiceInfoLine_Asset table as well.

Thank you for the suggestion! This has been added to our roadmap and will be considered for a future release.

I agree, for many customers, they have a Large Telephone bill, so one vendor invoice. but can't assign to many projects across many legal entities. As they pay their bill from one entity but wish to spilt the cost to many projects.

This is a desired feature request I have heard from multiple D365FO projects customers.
