A/R Invoice Entry is different from Sales Invoice though they are both involving debtors:

A/R Invoice Entry is an Accounting entry (no bill printing); while Sales Invoice is a billing document (Invoice can be printed)
A/R Invoice Entry (upon save) will automatically update the related G/L accounts; Sales Invoice (upon save) will post automatically (depends on option setting) the entries to A/R Invoice Entry and update the related G/L accounts.
A/R Invoice Entry is mainly used when you are not using Invoicing system;
You are not allowed to edit A/R Invoice Entry if it was posted from other source (Sales Invoice).
