Different billing date in Invoice and sales order

Dear Gurus,

When I create an invoice, the billing date is different from the billing date in the sales order with reference to which the invoice has been created (it is a service order without deliveries).

As per my knowledge, the billing date in the invoice should be picked from the billing date in the sales order.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Billing date can depend on plenty of things - the specific billing process, routines, user exits, manual user input, invoicing dates, billing plans, goods issue date etc.

    By pressing F1 on the billing date field in the sales order and reading the explanation, you could learn more about the topic.

    • Then check the other possible places, like routines, billing plans.

      I would not completely dismiss the possibility of custom code somewhere.. If everything else fails, there is always the possibility to debug billing document creation - there are some very useful pages in the wiki: search for 'RV_INVOICE_CREATE"+debug and filter by type = Page.

    According to SAP best practices, billing date will be same as actual goods issue date of the delivery note. Check to see both actual goods issue date and billing date on invoice. They should be same.

    Thanks we found the cause - in VBKD, at the line item level, the billling date was different than at the header level. This had caused the billing document to pick the billing date at the item level, not at the header level.
