For partial AR, how to take over baseline date from original AR

Dear all,

I am facing follwing requirement from user.

Does anyone have an idea to realize it?

<Requirement>

In partial AR, user needs to have same baseline date as original AR as below:

-Billing

Dr

AR  100 USD -Baseline date 12.10.2014

Cr

Sales 100 USD

-Partial Payment (10 USD)

Dr

Bank USD

Cr

AR 10 USD -Baseline date shold be 12.10.2014

->Currently, the baseline date is "Posting date" of Partial payment.

However, user would like system to set same date as original (Billing).

Your infomation would be so much appreciated.

    Dear Ishikawa,

    with partial payments the payment terms and the baseline date are not copied from the original invoice document to the partial payment document. It is working as designed.

    The system logic is just as below:

    A partial payment is a payment that is posted to an account without any open items being cleared.You assign this partial payment to an open item.When you post the partial payment, the system marks the document number of the original open item in the line item for the partial
    payment.

    The original open item and the partial payment remain open.

    With partial payments the payment terms and the baseline date are not copied from the original invoice document to the partial payment document.

    After you post a partial payment, the rest of the payment is posted to the invoice document.

    No incoming payment will be posted to the partial payment document,so you do not need payment terms and baseline date to be copied to the partial payment document.

    If the net due date for payment of the invoice is sooner than the document date of the partial payment, the document date of the partial payment will be used as the baseline date for payment.

    Example:

    1. AR invoice EUR 1000
    2. Partial payment EUR 200
    3. Payment for the rest of amount EUR 800
    -> When you execute the payment transaction, you are paying for the AR invoice (you select AR doc. in F-28), therefore you don't need to maintain the payment term nor baseline date in partial payment document.

    Therefore for  'Residual Items', not 'Partial Payment', the payment terms and the baseline date will be taken over by maintaining the 'payment term from invoice' flag in transaction code OBA3.

    When you post a residual item a new open item is created, and therefore you may want the payment term and baseline date to be copied.

    In your case, I would suggest you

    ->Use "Residual Items" instead of Partial payments.
    In 'Residual Items' the payment terms and the baseline date will   be taken over from the invoice.When you post a residual item a new open item is created.The payment terms and and baseline   date will be copied.if you maintain the 'payment term from invoice' flag in transaction code OBA3.

    ->You can also manually change the baseline date upon posting of partial payment.

    Best regards,

    Vera Meizner

    Hi Ishikawa,

    When making a Partial payment, the baseline date gets copied over from the Payment date.

    You can achieve what you are looking for by making Residual payments. In case of residual payment, the original open item is cleared, and the system posts a new open item.

    You can have the residual item have the same baseline date as the original item by creating a tolerance group. The specific setting within tolerance group is selecting the open Payment Term from invoice.

    You will need to maintain this tolerance group in customer master and then post the residual payment.

    Let me know if you face any issues.

    Hi Ishikawa,

    While making partial payment have you put original AR invoice number in ref. field? ideally system should take same payment terms as original invoice.

    Cheers,
