NO CHANGE OF POSTING DATE IN T. CODE MB31

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am facing problem in the posting date. In transaction

code MB31 there are two dates Document date and posting date and back

dates can be entered here. I want some date restriction if I enter a

back date. I have tried to block posting in MMRV transaction but it

disallow posting for previous month only and not day wise.

For Ex : Suppose I am doing GR today in MB31 i.e. 08.11.2006 but I am

entering 05.11.2006 as a posting date, system will allow GR for

production order. System will not allow posting on 28.10.2006 as I have

ticked DISALLOW POSTING FOR PREVIOUS PERIOD (MMRV TRANSACTION)

But my requirement is that I want posting should be

allowed for that date only with some margin of one day. If this is not

possible We want this default date to get freeze the moment you enter

the transaction (MB31). If you are opting for second option we want

some flexibility to change the date as required.

I hope you will kindly look into this matter and reply

as soon as possible.

Thanks and Regards,

Kiran Gharat

    Hi Kiran,

    You can create validation for your WE (Goods Receipt) Documents that your posting date should be equal to your Entry date(system picks current date) in transaction OB28.

    Then you would not be able to post WE Docs other than current date.

    Hi, In the T-code Mb31

    The Posting Date which is used is when entering the document in Financial Accounting or Controlling. The fiscal year and the period for which an update of the accounts specified in the document or cost elements is made, are derived from this posting date.

    When entering documents, the system checks whether the posting date entered is allowed by means of the posting period permitted.But this posting date can differ from both the entry date (day of entry into the system) and the document date (day of creation of the original document).This is for the practical purpose .

    So its for the Monthly permitted and not for a day or range .

    Secondly when you are saying :

    "We want this <b>default date to get freeze</b> the moment you enter

    the transaction (MB31). If you are opting for second option we want

    <u><i><b>some flexibility to change the date as required</b></i></u>."

    Both freezing and opting for changes is not possible , either one can occur .

    You can freeze/display mode only the field for the T-code and the document type, but that will not solve your problem .

    What i understand from the description is you want to Do GR on A particular date or GR should be allowed after a particular date . <u><b>Please let me know</b></u> if this is the case then there's a way around to do this that is you can do GR and Post on the dates near to your desirable dates .

    cheers KP

      Dear Kirit,

      I want to do GR on particular date only. I tried for validation but i m not aware how to define the validation. We can define validation from accounting point of view but not from MM point of view.Please help on this regards

    It should be already resolved.
