Delivery Date on Sale Order

Hi All,

In Sale Order document, In some cases the delivery date may be 2-3 yrs from the order date. So when Iam trying to give the same in due date, its showing an error message saying that

"Date deviates from the permissable range [Sales Order-DUe Date ][Message 173-11]"

can any one tell me the solution..

Thanks & Regards,

Couple of things you would need to do to fix this..

First, Define the Posting Periods for the next 2-3 years so that those dates can be used in the Due Date.

Second, Extend the Date Range for the DocDueDate and Tax Date fields...

All documents have 3 dates DocDate, DocDueDate, TaxDate. The date ranges for these dates are taken from the Active Posting period definition.

Open Administration > System Initialization > General Settings > Posting Periods

Click on the Yellow link arrow next to the current posting period and check the Due Date From and To Range and expand the To date to cover 31.12.2010 or what ever range you need

Posting Date From

Due Date From

Document Date From
