Date questions

Hi there,

i have got some little problems of understanding the "date".

For Example.

You make a incoming payment. There are 4 fields for date.

1st. Posting, 2nd. due date, 3rd. Document Date, 4th. Transfer Date.

1. Question

Ok, if you change the transfer date, the due date will be automatically changed. Why does it work in this way ? The due date must not be the transfer date.

2. Question

I think, the posting date is the date you make your entry. But it seems to be another date and why will the document date be changed by entering a posting date, which is different from today.

The problem is, that we need use the general ledger report for the daily bank transfer chart. So the idea was to enter the bank date on the bank statement for the posting date.

I need your advise, thanks
