You will get the Bill Control option under the Invoicing tab. This field will help you to define how to generate bills for purchases. The option you set here will be applied for all products as the default bill control policy. Later, you can change the invoicing policy of a product from its form view. Here, you can generate bills before and after delivery. If you want to generate vendor bills for all ordered quantities, you can select the Ordered Quantities as the Bill Control. By selecting this option, you will be able to generate bill for all the quantities mentioned in the purchase order. But in the case of the Received Quantities, Odoo will only bill the delivered quantities.
