Baseline Date

Hi Experts!

I have a problem, I need a Payment Term  with two payments day (10 and 25). I have read some forums where they indicate that I should create in OBB8 two conditions with the same code and I have do it.

My situation is the following: While creating the document everything is ok:

Baseline date is correct because according to document date (17.091.2015) baseline date should be this, but the wrong thing is that when I save the document this date is automatically changed to 10.03.2014 (the other date to my condition)

I have review all sustituions, validations and I can`t find anything so do you know if there is any standard function that makes this change?? I think in somewhere SAP is reading my Payment Terms data and is replacing the date.

Plase any idea is helpfull.

Regards

    Hi Sara,

    I am not sure as to why you have that system behavior.

    But if i understand your requirement correctly, what you want is the following,

    A) Invoices posted on or before a Particular day in the month, it should have a Baseline Date as 10th of that month.

    B) If the Invoice is posted after the day mentioned in Point A, and on or before the last day of that month, it should have 25th as Baseline date.

    If the above requirement is correct, i would configure the Payment Terms as follows.

    1) Pay Terms :ZTER

        Day Limit  :10

        Fixed Day 10

    2) Pay Terms : ZTER

        Day Limit : 31

        Fixed Day :25

    See if this will address your requirement.

    Best Regards

    Hi Sara,

    What is the base line date defined for the payment term in OBB8? And also check have you defined any fixed day or additional months for the payment term in OBB8?

    Hi Sara,

    Check your payment method if any payment term is assigned to the payment method.

    Hi all!

    Thank you very much for your help!! Maybe these screen captures help me to explain my situation.

    1.- First of all my OBB8 Configuration: I have two payment terms with the same code but different fixed days:

    2.- Now I create a document with document date 09.01 so the left option should be taken. While creating document everything is ok.

    3.-  Then I save document:

    4.- But when I check this document Bline date is another one different from this!!!!

    I have looked for a sustitution, an exit or any Z code that make this change but I can´t find anything. Is for it, that I think if maybe is a standar SAP behaviour but I don`t know.

    I don't know where to look or what I have to check. My only solution is debugging FB01 but it is very difficult...

    Please, any idea is helpfull for me.

    Regards!!!

    Hi again!

    I have found something interesting, Is possible that day limit fixed in OBB8 always refer to Entry Date??

    I refer to this field.

    I have made this test. All tests I have made today (01/11/2015) fill due date 03/25/2015. Then I have change this "Day limit" to 17 and the same test (same document) fill with due date 03/10/2015.

    It will explain why all my tests done at the begining of this post ( 01/08/2015) taked due date 03/10/2015.

    In case of that I will finally find an explanation of this behaviour but, Can I configured this Day Limit to consider Document day (for example)

    I believe I'm close to the solution, I only need a bit of help to confirm what I think.

    Best Regards and thank you very much!

    • I checked in my system & found that day limit in OBB8 always refer to default baseline date irrespective of entry date..

      If you have selected default baseline date = document date then it will refer to document date.. So in your case if doc date is 11 to 31 then baseline date =25.
