But SAP always blocks duplicate invoices, so that they never exist... do they?

Many people tell me that there is no point in doing duplicate invoice testing for them because they have SAP, so it is not possible to enter duplicate invoices.

It’s a little-known secret that in SAP there is a setting to block or not to block invoices that are entered two times with exactly the same information.

How do you know if all of your entities have set that setting to block? What if someone temporarily sets it to not blocked?

And then, if it is blocked, what if you enter invoice number 12345 and then invoice number 12345v2?

Unfortunately, SAP does not yet have any machine learning that will enable a pop up to appear on the screen and say to you… “Hang on a minute, that looks kind of funny what you are doing there!”
