Posting date in Purchase order is not consistent with all Line items



We have enable Posting date as optional filed in creation of Purchase order due to positing relating to previous months. This field option enabled due to avoid the error "Posting date is earlier than the Existing date/Period" when you do GR.

Scanaraio -

1. PO consists of 01 line item. When PO is updated with One posting date in PO Header, its affecting the FM Posting date with updated Posting date and able to Post GR.

E.g. PO Doc date 22.02.2015, Posting date is 08.02.2015,Creation Date 08.04.2015.

We Observed that in FM Ledgers through FMAVCR01 Report, Before Posting date updation, FM Posting date was updated with PO Creation date. Where as after updating Posting date in above PO, FM Posting updated with Posting date. Then system allowing to post the GR Document on 22.02.2015, subsequent to PO document.

2. The related PO consists of 04 Line items. Where as PO is updated with One Posting date in PO Header is affecting the FM Ledgers only for First Line item.

Eg. PO doc date is 28.01.2015 and Posting date is 28.01.2015, Creation date 08.04.2015.

We observed that in FM Ledger through FMAVCR01 report. The posting date updated for above PO is updated only for first line item of the PO. The rest of 02nd, 03rd and 04th line items of FM Posting date is still showing PO Creation date. When we trying to post the GR Document on 22.02.2015, system generating the error Posting date is earlier than existing date/period.

Issue : System not updating the FM Posting date with PO Header posting date, for all line items in Scanario-2.

Please hlep on this.

Thanks & Regards
