2585979 - Supplier Invoice Document Number is created with Suffix as Current Year even though the Posting Date is of Previous Year


You have entered invoice posting date as a date in previous year (e..g xx.yy.2017), but the invoice document ID is still created with suffix as current year e.g.2018

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Select view Invoice entry
  3. Show All Orders to be Invoiced
  4. Select New Invoice
  5. Enter posting date from previous year (e.g. 20.12.2017)
  6. Select Save
  7. The Document ID is still created with suffix as current year i.e.2018


The numbering of a document depends upon what parameters you have maintained in your Business Configuration settings not on posting date.In Business Configuration activity "Document Numbering Formats for Supplier Invoicing", you have maintained "Calendar Year as Suffix", so the system will assign the number as per current calender year


If you have selected calendar year as suffix, then you can select either Invoice Date or Posting Date as the Year Suffix Selection Date under this option "Year Suffix Selection Date" in "Document Numbering Formats for Supplier Invoicing"
