Bline date

Hello all,

We are currently on SAP 4.6C and I hope you can help me with the following question(s)

Within Accounts Receivable when we change the payment term on an invoice document it automatically changes the bline date. Is this standard SAP? Can this be switched off within configuration that the bline date doesn't get changed when the user changes the payment term?

Also do you know what else besides payment term within a posted document can influence the bline date?

Your help is much appreciated and will be rewarded with points.

    The setting for determination of baseline date is in the definition of payment term itself (check transaction OBB8). You can specify whether the baseline date should be posting date, document date, entry date or it should not be defaulted at all in the posting.

    When you change the payment term, it doesn't always change the baseline date. For example, you have two different payment terms (A and B) and in both of them, the radio button 'entry date' is selected as default for baseline date. In the posting, when you change the payment term from A (default) to B, the baseline will not change. It is standard SAP process that baseline always gets determined / redetermined from the payment term. Moreover, the baseline date just gets 'defaulted' in the posting, depending on what you have set up in the payment term - it can be 'changed' manually by the user.
