Creation date of a Physical Inventory document

Dear Experts

How can we know when a PI document was created.

Example, i can create a PI document using MI01 today ( i.e 07.05.2012).

In the Document date i can give any past date 9 example 01.04.2007)... this date is getting captured in IKPF table as the creation date.

So it is misleading.

Where can i know the date on whihc the PI document was actually created.

thanks

Syed

    according to the program code in MM07IFE0, you will receive an error message M7089

    if you enter a document date which is different from fiscal year (just a warning if it is previous year)

    This coding exists aready since year of 2000

    Based on this date the posting period will be determined.In general it is defaulted with todays date. any change is intentional.

    The CPU date and time is not stored . If you need it, then you may need to activate the change log for IKPF table in SE11, or customize audit trail (then you can check in AUT10) or check Business transaction analysis in transaction STAD.

    Planned count date has impact on the subsequent postings and hence SAP has given a message "Planned date for phys. inventory is earlier than today's date - Message no. M7834" If you dont want someone to enter a prior planned count date you can restrict that. But document date doesnt have much impact so SAP might ignore any messages until otherwise if its previous fiscal year.

    You can't even change the document date to display mode in MI01. So educating the users with planned count date error message is a nice option.. it doesn't sound worth to go for any enhancement to the program too.
