You've ran a data flow verification run, which ended up in error due to date differences.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Application and User Management work center.
  2. Go to Data Flow Verification Results view.
  3. Find the relevant result.
  4. Expand the error log.

You see the error messages:

  • Accounting Notification <document ID>, Operational Document Type <Document type>, Company <Company ID>
  • 'Document dates differ'


The data flow verification is comparing the posting dates of the source document.

The changes on the posting date occurred and has been reflected in separate source document versions. The data flow verification has been executed in between these two source document versions, hence the matching posting date in the second version was processed after the data flow verification.


A repeat check after the second version of the source document is processed clears the error.
