Third party sales processing does not work like that actually..

In fact, a third party sales processing is required because your company does not have the required goods to sell to the customer, so that's why a third party vendor is required to supply (and deliver/ship) the goods directly to your customer and then bill your company. The standard process flow would work this way: Create Third Party Sales Order (VA01/VA03 - retrieve PR num)* --> Create Purchase Order (Display list of PR with ME57 and convert to PO with ME58) --> Approval/Release of PO (if required - ME28) --> Invoice Verification (MIRO)** --> Billing (VF01/vf04) * The PR number is automatically created in this step. **The incoming invoice from the vendor updates the billing quantity, so that the customer-billing document can only be created after entering the invoice from the vendor. So, in this situation, you do not carry out a MIGO in your company process.
Configuration: 1. Create your Account Assignment Category required for Purchasing. 2. Create your Item Categories for Purchasing Doc. 3. Assign to combination of the relevant Item Categories for Purchasing Doc. 4. Create your relevant 3rd Party Sales Doc Ty & Assign the Item Categories for SD. 5. Maintain the copy control for your Sales Doc (header & item). 6. Define and maintain your Transfer Requirement config - Define the Class --> Define the Requirement --> Assign the Determination. 7. Maintain the SD Schedule Line Categories control - here u assign the Acct. Assignment Cat similar to your Purchasing and determine the PR type you want to trigger (i.e. ZNB). 8. Assign the Schedule Line Categories to Item Categories. 9. Maintain copy control for Schedule Lines. 10. Configure your Billing Doc - it must be Order-related Billing. 11. Maintain copy control for Billing: i.e, OR --> F2 (if you did a Copy As.. function from the std SAP docs, the copy control should already be in place). As for the "Billing Quantity" indicator in the Billing Copy Control config - You can consider indicator E, F and I for third party transactions, depending on the requirement of the your company. Hope this helps. Thanks.
