    Hi Eric,

    thank you for you're replay, but we are in a situation in which a lot of documents belong to earlier fiscal years (already closed) and i think that it's not possible to reverse a closed document.

    Hi Anass

    Go to FA->GL a/cing->BT->GL a/c postings->carry out and check doc settings->Doc change rules,doc header and enter document date field here with 'field is modifiable' ticked

    This should allow you to change doc date field

    hi Anass,

    you can't change the document date after posting. You have to reverse the document and repost it with the proper date.

      Sorry for the wrong info Anass, Doc field is one among those core fields which cannot be changed despite the settings there

      But what exactly is the requirement when you say documents are in closed period

    Document date cannot be changed irrespective of what you do.

    As eric said, the best way is to reverse and re-post.

    Use mass reversal if you have a lot of items.
