    The Posting date refers to the exact date on which you want it to appear in records.

    The document date can be the date when you are putting it in SAP.

    Both are mandatory but they need not be same always.

    As I said above,there might be case that you are posting a document on monday but you wanted to actually post it on previous saturday.In this case the document date will be mondays date and posting date can be of saturday.

    Please remember,the open/closed posting period may also play a major role here when you are trying to post for previous months.Care should be taken to not post a document for future date.

    Hi

    Posting and document date can be same or not.

    Document Date is the date that the transaction took place. (must be on or before the Posting date )

    Posting Date determines the posting period (the system will enter this date if not provided )

    these date are mandatory as per SAP standard SAP .Please let me know exact requiremnent you want to do?
