I am glad that my suggested places to look bore you some fruit, but what you are now saying is a puzzlement to me. There can be multiple unusual things happening, such that when we first examine some files in detail, we don't know what is unusual.

Our version not have IPP file so someone else needs to tell you significance of it.

Stuff often goes haywire. If the situation is a single one time inexplicable event, sometimes it is more productive to get the records correct than figure out what caused ti to go haywire.

Various actions update different files.
This can include modifications to BPCS software, and practices.
Also, we can have too many cooks ... other people updating stuff that is not obvious.

I advise NOT to reorganize orders until everything in an order is resolved.

The RMAs are contained in separate members of ECH ECL etc. file structures.

In all probability there are several different ECL lines on the item in question.
There are probably several different SIL billing installments.

Some place in SIL or SIH layout there is a document # which ties back to the ESH ESL shipping detail records. They don't have item or quantity there, but you can see how many shipments occurred.

The extra 46,000 invoiced in ECL that did not get shipped, that could have been via Billing Adjustments.
In our version, BIL500 creates SIL etc. records detailing what got shipped & the flow updates ECL in concert with aggregate SIL, while BIL600 does billing adjustments that usually create a dummy order that can never be seen in ECL.

I have checked the file ITH, ECL and IPP.

There is a additional record of 34000 QTY in the IPP

But the when I see the SIL file
Line qty = 34000
pick qty =-12000

The ECL is saying the total ord qty as 80000. It is
qty shipped is 80000. But the qty invoice(LQTIN) is
