Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Select view Invoices and credit memos
  3. Search for the respective invoice and select View All
  4. The Invoice date field is greyed out


You have set the option "Document Date"  i.e Invoice Date as Year suffix selection date in the Business configuration activity "Document Numbering Formats for Supplier Invoicing" for that company.

Allowing a change on the invoice date may need a change in the generated number to uniquely identify the Supplier Invoice and hence it is kept read only to avoid any inconsistency.


You have to set the fields correctly as per your requirement in the fine tuning activity "Document Numbering Formats for Supplier Invoicing" when you set up the business configuration settings to avoid this issue.
