You have created some customer invoices from invoice run execution, and you find in these customer invoices, the posting date is blank.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing - Invoice Documents.
  2. Open the invoice ABC, which was created by the invoice run. (ABC represents the customer invoice ID)
  3. Click View All and go to General tab. You can see the field Posting Date, and find the field is blank.


When creating a new invoice from invoice request (either manually or from invoice run), the posting date is blank (defaults to invoice date) unless the user manually enter a date.

Put the mouse over the question mark besides the Posting Date field, you can see the explanation:

Used date for posting of receivables and revenues in financials. If nothing is entered the invoice date is used.


This is the designed system behavior.
