Question: Tell us about an invoice discrepancy that you discovered and how you resolved the discrepancy.

Answer: Discrpancies in invoices could be many. Like there might a incorrect amount entered, incorred date or account code combination entered etc. If the amount entered is not matching with the purchase order then the system will place the invoice on hold which will have to be released before going further. If there is no purchase order matching and if you have entered wrong amount and if it is approved then you can reverse the distribution line and create a fresh line for the correct amount.
