Document Date

Hi Experts,

We all do know that documents such as SO, DO, PO or GRPO consist of 3 main document dates which are Posting Date, Due Date and Document Date. All 3 dates are open field, in which user are able to change the date according to their own preference.

However, because of this, I notice that there were a lot of mistakes when user key in dates. User often choose a wrong month or a wrong date due to their carelessness. I wish to reduce the occurence of this issue, by locking certain date such as Document Date or Posting Date. My question is, can we do so in SBO ? Please advice.

Thank you,

Best Regards,

Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Those two settings are defined under General tab. Therefore they will apply to all documents. There is no such per document setting at least in A version.

    I suggest you create a simply FMS for the top date field as the current date. User saved value instead of auto refresh. In this way it could eliminate most human errors.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    Hi Alex,

    yes u can lock all date by some manual setting

    Administrator > System Initialization > Document Setting > General Tab

    There you can uncheck

    1) Block documents with earlier Posting Date

    2) Allow Future Posting Date

    Delivery Dt. have different setting as per BP

    Hope u have clear now

    Thanks
