promissory notes


Hi experts,

first of all i want to define what this promissory notes are:

An unconditional promise in writing made by one person to another, signed by the maker, engaging to pay, on demand or at a fixed or determinable future time, a sum certain in money, to, or to the order of, a specified person, or to bearer.

In our company our customers gave to us promissory notes and at a specific date they make payment with sum from that promissory note. When we receive this promissory notes, we post it in SAP using t-code F-30 with document type DA.

Our problem is when we post this promissory notes, automatically decrease receivables (from FD32) so in this way customer could make sales orders.

I give an example:

Let's assume that customer A has credint limit 10.000 EUR and his credit exposure is 12.122 EUR. At this moment this customer is blocked becasue credint management.

If today i post a promissory note in F-30 for this customer with sum 2500 EUR(but this payments would be effective cash after , let's assume 15 days ) , SAP automatically decrease his credit exposure to 9622 EUR (12122-2500=9622) so in this way customer A can make sales order starting from today. Normally, in this situation, we want that customer A to could make order only after 15 days (when promissory note payment become effective)

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.
