Billing document dates !?


a small issue regarding billing dates in SD/LE environment.

our business has a background job that runs end of the month picking all the billing documents from the first day of the month to the last day into an invoice-list.

my question is - the users shipment start a shipment for the 30th of the month (but they does on the 1st or 2nd of the next month) and somehow the billing document is not having shipment-start date but its showing the date of the 1st or 2nd. and the invoice-list batch job run on the 6th of each month making a that picks the billing docs of the whole previous month.

how to rectify this error to make sure that even if the users shipment start with the date of the 30/06/08 (for example) but they do it on the 02/07/08, the billing doc should have the 30th as the billing date???

its a bit confusing though.

    Generally billing date will eb determined from the following..

    If you are creating billing wrf to delviery then billing date will be goods issue date of delivery. That means what ever the date u are putting for goods issue that date will be considered for billing date..

    If it is through Order related then what ever billing date has been mentioned in order tht will be considered as Billing date in invoice..

    Hope you have understood...

    Dear Poorna

    Try with this.

    Go to VOFA, select your billing document type and see what value is maintained for number range. Make a note of it. Now go to [VFP1] and maintain that number range with date as 30-06-08 so that whatever billing is generated after 30th, for all those documents, the invoice date would be 30th.
