2298594 - CPEL Proposed Posting Date Later Than Expense Posting Date Due To Service Period End Date


You have created supplier invoice item XYZ-X referencing to a project task of a Customer Project with Sales Integration with posting date in period AAA.YYYY.

The expense is being assigned to a sales order item (either automatically or manually in the Not Invoiced Times and Expenses Screen or the Customer Project Invoice Request). This expense assignment triggers the generation of Customer Project Expense List (CPEL) ABC. The CPEL, however cannot be posted to accounting but appears in the Unposted Source Documents view of the General Ledger workcenter. The proposed posting date of the CPEL ABC is in in a much later period ZZZ.YYYY.

Also, the source document's error message in the Messages table states: Period AAA in fiscal year YYYY closed for closing step Operational postings.

You have verified that the sales order item posting date of the Sales order item assigned to the project task that the supplier invoice item is referencing to - is not later than the invoice posting date.

As period AAA.YYYY has been already closed for Operational Postings you are now trying to post CPEL ABC in the following period BBB.YYYY. This is not possible due to the error message: Business transaction for accounting for Customer Project Expense List ABC, version X with alternate posting date not processed. Alternate posting date must be after proposed posting date.
