Cash Flow Statement - Average Delay Field Effects

Hi Everyone,

Can somebody please explain exactly how the average delay on the business partner record affects the cash flow statement?

I ran a cash flow statement for 7/01/2008 thru 7/31/2008. I then found an invoice that was to be paid the week of 7/28/2008 (it hasn't been paid yet), and opened up the corresponding business partner record and changed the average delay from 0 to 10. I then re-ran the aging and nothing has changed. The invoice still appears in teh 7/28/2008 week to be paid. Am I missing a step or something? If I understand correctly, the invoice should have moved into the next week on the cash flow statement as this is when the customer will be paying it according to past payment schedules.

Thank you for your help.

Amanda

    Hi Amanda

    I just tested on 2007A PL37 and it worked fine. Moved to week based on due date + average delay. Are you sure you ticked the "Consider Delays in Payment" box? Also check again if the master record was updated with the average delay value you gave it. Let me know what version of SAP Business One you are running.

    Kind regards

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for your response. I did not have the checkbox ticked to consider delays. Sometimes it's the obvious things you miss when you've been looking at the screen for awhile.

      I appreciate your help.
