Dates Determination in Rebate
Hi ERP gurus,
I'm getting troubles with rebate management. Here below an example
I created a rebate agreement starting from first of january and ending at the end of September.
Let's assume that today 5th of october i create a credit memo request through the rebate itself. The sales document created has billing date (VBKD-FKDAT), Serv.rendered date (VBKD-FBUDA), Pricing date (VBKD PRSDT) 30.09.07.
Due to FI validation, since the last document created in the number range has a date greater than the one i'm trying to post (i.e. 04.10) i cannot send the credit note to accounting.
Which are the workarounds that ususally are put in place to skip this kind of problems?
Standard SAP provides data transfer routine 11 at item level in your copy control setup between your rebate document request and rebate billing document - Tcode VTFA to change the billing date to today's date.
If you are already using some other routine for data transfer validations, then copy the code from 11 into your routine and make the credit note date equals today date. Put the extra logic to check your document type so that the code only works for your rebate based credit notes only.
