Date & Sales Order

1. I just like to know if it is ok to make a sales order at the current date and make the actual delivery in the next 3 weeks. This will affect the date of course. What is the implication of this kind of delivery?

2. If the scenario is, you are going to make a delivery for a sales order which is dated to the month which is already closed (like December book), what is the implication of this or possible issue?

3. Please see this [image|http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h336/809836724/date_inquiry_03feb2012.jpg]. Relating to my number 2 question, what are the dates that needs to be changed so that this late delivery can happen?

    Hi

    It isn't a problem. Think in a manufacturing enviroment. Perhaps in a extreme case (a manufacturer of aircrafts). You do the SO and you need make it before to delivery it. How much time do you need to build an aircraft? All this is related with ATP and how to transfer needs to other areas (MM,PP). The question of date for months closed is related with the PGI linked to the delivery. Until you create the delivery and do the PGI you can manage pending orders.

    I hope this helps you

    Regards

    Eduardo

    You can very well crete sales order like this. In fact this requirement gets passed to proper planning.

    2. If the scenario is, you are going to make a delivery for a sales order which is dated to the month which is already closed (like December book), what is the implication of this or possible issue?

    This is purely depends how accounting wants to see the sales postings. If it is one delivery it is not an issue, if there are many deliveries, then during PGI, the actual PGI date needs to be in the past date and the posting period for the past month should be open by accounting. Normally during first few days of the new month, the accounting keeps the previous period open, so that logistics department can post past month deliveries/billings.

    3. Please see this image. Relating to my number 2 question, what are the dates that needs to be changed so that this late delivery can happen?

    You can use requested delivery date field.

    Regards,

    Another question.

    How can you prevent a user from doing late posting? I mean doing post goods issue at a past date and billing in a past date.

    Please help. Thanks.
