Vendor Invoices automatically to be blocked on creation and unblocked on due date
This is a little different scenario , please share your inputs.
Vendor Invoices created for Vendors on Jan 1st, 2016 and Due Date is Mar 31st, 2016
On the date of vendor invoice ( i.e Jan 1st) creation system should automatically make a payment block
On the Due date ( I.e Mar 31st,2016) system should automatically unblock payment block, so that it would include in payment run F110.
Please share your inputs on the solution for above scenario

1. Why do you want to do this? If you use APP (F110), it will naturally ensure that no invoices are paid before due date... If that was the reason, educate your client
2. If you still wanna do this, proceed as below
a. The Payment Term that you assign in the Vendor master can be used to Block the line item automatically.. There is a "Payment Block" field in every Payment Term
b. To Unblock - You will require a Z Program for FB02, which runs every night in background and clears the Payment Block.. For this, you will have to allow the Payment Block Field in FB02 - Document Change rules
But seriously, think about (1)
