Questions on R&R billing in SIS environment

Question Background:
Invoice total record (SFI40)/Net Billing amount sign can only be ‘P’, and Source Code total record (SFI21)/Total net reject amount sign can only be ‘P’. 
 
Could you explain how the airlines handle the R&R billing in SIS environment?  The memos of R&R might be RMs, or CMs in auditing one invoice of R&R billings.  Do the airlines have to make the outward memos of the same inward invoices separately invoiced for RM and CM?

Could you please clarify this a bit? Do you mean R&R as in request & response, which I understand is a Oneworld procedure?
 
Even with understanding R&R, I think I'll still be confused. Could you please provide some further examples.
 
Thanks.

To be clarified, in current processing, we would raise one rejection which net amount is negative. In IS processing, we could not generate one RM when net amount is negative. We have to create one CM for this scenario. In other words, we accordingly have to generate two kinds of outwards invoice due one inward invoice. One is for negative, the other is for positive.

You're right.
  1. You can't have a negative RM -- you would need a CM
  2. You can't have a CM on the same invoice as the RM -- you would need a separate invoice

Beyond that, I'm not familiar enough with R&R to comment as to whether there is a better way to do this than creating a negative RM.
