    Hi Prashant,

    The Open item is a term used for Credit management calculation purpose.

    With your own example if the invoice is posted on 1'st Dec 2007 and payment term is 15 days.

    So if the payment is not received within the 15 days and customer orders one more order then the sales order will be blocked for credit.

    The system responce will be sales order blocked for crdit.Oldest of open items overdue 😊

      Hi amrish ... Thx so much.

      I know that credit part. But have u sometimes gone thru FBL5N report(cust. line items). It show all open/due/overdue/parked/cleared items.

      So I m confused with the status of the item.

      In my example please once again tell me .. what will b status of the item within those 15 days? what after 15 days?

    Dear Prashant

    Will try to explain with your example itself.

    As per your agreement, the payment will fall due on 16th December and the customer is suppose to effect payment within two three days maximum. <i><b>This we can call as DUE</b></i>. At the worst case, it can exceed to 5 - 7 days which varies from company to company.

    If the payment exceeds beyond this<i><b> then it is overdue</b></i>. Got it?? ::))

      Laxmi... thx vry much.

      What makes me wonder is that 2-3 or 5-7 days u said. Is it unknown unsaid understanding between 2 businesses?

      Then how system decides when to show the item to be 'overdue'? whr u define such period?
