Propose delivery date in Sales order to pick current date

Hi,

I want to set the delivery date in SO to pick the current system date. Users should be able to change it to a future date <b>but not to a past date</b>.

Can anyone advice on how this can be done? I tried VOV8, but still, it didnt get determined properly.

Any advice?

Thanks

Keshi

    Hi,

    In VOV8 if you click on the popose delviery date then the system will determine the delivery date as today's only. If the users try to change the delivery date in the past then the system will give a warning but it will be changed.

    In the sales screen of the sales order the date which is there is the "<b>requested delivery date of the customer"</b> This is the date by which the customer is expecting the material at his/her place. You can change it to the past but schedule line will not allow you to deliver the material in the back date.

    But for the particular item if you go in the schedule lines try changing the delivery date in the past. The system will create 2 schedule lines and the schedlue line for today's date only will be confirmed. So no question of delivery in the past date.

    Hope this clarifies your doubt. Reward points if solution helps.

    Hi Keshini,

    If you want the Requested delivery date to be today's date in VOV8 give the Lead time in Days as Zero and check the propose Delivery Date Field. After doing this setting create an order the requested delivery date will be as of today. For the other requirement you need to do customization for the field.

    Reward points if it helps.

    Hi Keshini

    Whatever be the "Requested Delivery Date of the Customer" in sale order, one can pre date the PGI by entering past date in "Actual GI Date" which is recorded in table LIKP and field WADAT_IST.

    To prevent this, goto SE19 -->Select Definition Name LE_SHP_DELIVERY_PROC and with the help of your ABABer, write a code for your delivery types that date cannot be predated.

    I have a similar requirement and my ABABer has developed and it is working fine for me.

    Thanks
