    Hi venkat,

    The AUDAT is the document date . It tell you the date on which the source for the Sales Order (It can be aCustomer Purchase Order) came in.

    On the other hand, the ERDAT is the absolute creation date.

    For example you may get an Order from your customer yesterday in the form of an idoc.

    BUt the idoc might be processed only today.

    In which case, the audat will be yesterday's date and ERDAT will be todays date.

    Regards,

    Ravi

    ERDAT means when the record is created in the system.

    AUDAT means the date when the order is came which is not yet created in the system.

    for example u ordered 2 pencils today, so the sales order date is today but if we create the same in the syatem tomorrow then tomorrow is the ERDAT,means exact date when the order is created.

    Not too sure about this:

    In most of the cases AUDAT and ERDAT will have same value.

    AUDAT is can be different from ERDAT when we are getting data from legacy system or something like that.

    This means order was received at some other date but really created on some other date. ERDAT is order creation date.

    thnx,

    ags.

    ERDAT is the date of record creation in the table. In other words, is today date. AUDAT refers to the Document Date. You can, for example, create today a Sales Document, which wouldbe created yesterday. If you look at VBAK table, ERDAT contains today date (date of record creation) and AUDAT would show you yesterday date (document date).
