How to change the entered date?

Hi Guys,

I have a tough question for all you. How can I maintain the Posting date same as Entered Date?

Like in my company, we run payment proposal daily which picks up all the document entered up to yesterday. Now while running the proposal sometimes we encountered problems relating to invoicing error. Generally we reversed & re post that invoice, however since this invoice was posted today, it will not get picked for today's payment run.

Now, I have tried changing the posting date to yesterday's date however since it got entered today, it did not get picked up for the today's proposal.

Somehow I was thinking that how can I maintain the posting date same as entered date while posting.

Can Validation or Substitution method help?

Dear Abhishek,

my suggestion is to build up a validation by OB28 to tell to the user to change the date as the entry date.

According to the note 42615, the dates are not fields that can be officially substituted.

Validation name MAURI

Validation step 001


Company Code = 'xxxx' AND Document Type = 'xx'


BKPF-BUDAT = SYST-DATUM (Posting Date = Current Date)


Message type E Message class Z1

Message number 003

Message text Your custome message test

Message variables


3 SYST - DATUM 4 -

I hope this helps You.
