Cancellation date in Sales Order

Hi All,

In Sales Order, Accounting tab, there is "Cancellation Date" field. Does anybody know what is the use of that field?.

I read in help : Cancellation Date Specify the last date on which the customer accepts the goods.

But when I entry a Sales Order with cancellation date 27 September 2008. Then I change the system date to 29 September 2008, the sales order with cancellation date 27 September 2008 still have "Open" Status and I still can transfer that the sales order to delivery.

Does anybody know what is the use of "Cancellation date" field?. it is only information or sap b1 can automatic cancel the sales order after that date?

Thank U all.

The orders with a Cancel older than 30 days will appear in the pick and pack list but you will not be able to pick it.

It is still possible to create a delivery for this sales order as the delivery can be created with a past date.

If you want to change the definition, please fill in the development request below.

In order find the order with a cancel date older than today's date you can run the following query.

SELECT T0.DocNum FROM ORDR T0 WHERE T0.DocStatus ='o' and T0.CancelDate < getdate()

The cancel date does not generate a kind of automatic cancellation therefore you will have to close them manually.

Wish the above information is helpful for you.
