2078846 - How to Correct the Posting Date of an Open Payment in Supplier Account

Symptom

You have an open payment in the supplier account with the posting date as e.g., 01.11.2014 but the actual posting date is suppose to be as 07.11.2014 and you want to correct the posting date without canceling the payment.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payables work center, and choose the Suppliers view.
  2. Select the Supplier Accounts subview.
  3. Choose Supplier XYZ, and then select View.
  4. In the Trade Payables tab, show Open Items.
  5. You can see an open payment with posting date as 01.11.2014.

Cause

Your posting date to the open payment is incorrect and you want to correct it but system does not directly allow you to edit the payment and correct the posting date. The posting date field is not editable either.

Resolution

You can follow the workaround provided to reset the posting date at a later date.

  1. Go to the Payables work center, and choose the Suppliers view.
  2. Select the Supplier Accounts subview.
  3. Choose Supplier XYZ, and then select View.
  4. In the Trade Payables tab, show Open Items.
  5. Select the open payment, click Actions and Repost Open Items.
  6. Enter the New Posting date e.g., 07.11.2014 and enter another dummy supplier under repost to Supplier.

Now this payment will be moved from this supplier account to another supplier account, which you selected under repost to supplier with posting date as per what you have provided while reposting. You need to go this dummy supplier or any supplier, which you choose during reposting for the time being and repeat the above steps and repost it back to original supplier account. On this way, you can correct the posting date and this payment will be back in supplier XYZ with correct posting date.
