Hi Paul,

Thanks for the detail session. I have few queries as below

1. For shipped not billed list my client s using VF04 report and do the billing by batch job for posting billing document. Please share you experience for not using batch and using standard setting for shipped not billed account configuration.

2. For WIP in COPA, you have given suggestion. But I have query that why you will analyse WIP in COPA. As you are reversing the consumption which is not materialise. And any consumption account also not updated in COPA.

Please let me know if more information is required.

Great session...

Especially I liked the work-around for tracking the "Billed but not delivered/shipped" scenario.
