3142305 - Manage Automatic Payments: Free selection date error message FU057


When using the Manage Automatic Payments, the free selection date throws an error message:
"The size of the selected field is 000008 characters (Message no. FU057)".



Reproducing the Issue

To replicate the error go to the App Manage Automatic Payments:

  1.  Create a Run Date and Identification
  2.  Insert the Parameters for the Payment Run
  3.  In the Free selection tab when using Document Date(BKPF-BLDAT). 
  4.  Insert the Document date: 01/01/2021 
  5.  The error message is shown.

The size of the selected field is 000008 characters
Message no. FU057


The free selection of the Document date does not support / or . in example the dates 01/01/2021 or 01.01.2021. 


The Free Selections in the payment run, the values must be specified in the same way as they are technically saved in the database.
For example, always in the full length, or in the order in which they exist in the database.
Data type DATS Date field (YYYYMMDD), stored as Char(8). 

You cannot use / or . but then you need to insert the data as whole:
- 20210101 

Then the selection of the Free Selection should work without any issues.
