change baseline date when an accounting document is created.

Hi ,

When a sales order is created and billing is done baseline date in accounting document is copied from billing/invoice date by default. my requirement is to change this baseline date based on some custom logic, This is required because SAP calculates due date based on baseline date. Can anyone help me how this scenario can be handled.

Rgds,

harish

    As suggested by Lakshmipathi it can be controlled through payment terms. If it doesnt meet the requirements then use user exit enhancement SDVFX008 to change the baseline date.

    Dear Harish

    Go to obb8, select your Payment Terms and execute. There you can see a tab "Default for baseline date". You can make changes with the concurrence of your FI guys.

    thanks

    Hi,

    As understand from your question, I think its better practice to change the baseline date either manually or automatically from some logic during the billing document creation. This can be done through through the following userexit

    USEREXIT_FILL_VBRK_VBRP or

    SDVFX004 or

    SDVFX008

    or

    As Mr.Lakshmiprasad explain in his message, make the default setting after concern with FI Consultant in OBB8.

      Hi Harish,

      Can you send me how your problem of baseline date resolved finally. I too have similar situation and not able to understand why baseline date in FI document is taken from posting date even if it is set to default as 'Entry date' in trnx OBB8.
