SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the General Ledger work center.
- Go to the Source Documents view.
- Find relevant Expense Report.
Error: 'Proposed date 01.01.2021 of reversal must not be before original date 01.02.2021'.
01.01.2021 - example of Posting date for Expense Report.
01.02.2021 - example of date the Posting cannot take place before.
This error can occur if the Expense Report has a Clearing that relates to the Date 01.02.2021, hence the system tries to Reverse this Clearing at the same time of the Posting of the Expense Report Cancellation and since the Date is after the Posting Date the error is raised.
To be able to use the chosen Posting Date for the Expense Report Cancellation, first Reverse the Clearing that is associated with this Expense Report.
Once this is done you should be able to Post the Reversal in 01.01.2021.
