2625132 - Custom Payment Terms

Symptom

You are creating a new custom Payment Term and you are not able to maintain both  'Number of Days After Invoice Date / Receipt Date' and 'Fixed Day of Month'  in same Payment term.

Environment

SAP Business Bydesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select the project line.
  4. Click the Open Activity List button.
  5. Search for the activity Accounts/Suppliers.
  6. Select the activity.
  7. Click the Open button.
  8. Click the Maintain Payment Terms hyperlink.
  9. Click the Add Row button.
  10. Enter value for Number of Days After Invoice Date / Receipt Date.
  11. Check the checkbox under Specification of time duration.
  12. You can maintain Fixed Day of Month  and Additional Month, however, Number of Days After Invoice Date / Receipt Date changes the value to zero and it becomes grayed out.

Cause

You cannot combine 'Number of Days After Invoice Date / Receipt Date' and 'Fixed Day of Month' in one customized payment term.

Default payment terms(those that does not start with Z) like for example "45 days from Invoice Date, End of month" and "End of Month of Invoice Date, 45 days" are different as they were designed and delivered by SAP based on business rules ,so you cannot create new payment terms similar to them as thease are standard payment terms.
