    Hello Tina,

    For this kind of case, usually, we suggest following two solutions:

    1. define the period in OB29;

    2. create your own report to update the date field.

    If you do not want to change the settings in OB29, then you could consider the 2nd solution.

    Also, there is no standard report to delete such an order. I am afraid that you need to create your own report if you still want to delete the order.

    • Hello Tina,

      There is no standard report can be used to update the date in this case. You have to create it by yourself.

      Genarally speaking, for example, the incorrect field is in table A, field name is B, and correct date should be 20/11/2015, then the report should be something like this:

      update A set B = '20151120'

      where XXXXXXX

      The "where" condition is used to select the entry need to be updated.

      This is just an outline of the report for your reference. You still need to discuss it with your developer in detail.
