Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Analytics work center
  2. Open Design Data Sources work center view
  3. Find data source Sales Order Header
  4. Open the documentation link or click on Preview
  5. You can see characteristic Posting Date
  6. Then open any sales order from Sales work center, Sales Order work view

There is no Posting Date field can be found from the sales order header.


We are using the Creation Date and representing the same as posting date.
The Creation Date get set by the system based on when the document was created and it is editable on the sales order header.

The Created On-administrative date is a separate one.

Note: Similar logic for characteristic Item Posting Date in data source Sales Order Item.


Creation Date can be re-labeled to Posting Date using Key User Tool if needed.
