Environment

SAP Cloud for Customer

Cause

The Calculated option is currently not available for extension fields with type "Date/Time".

This properly only can be set for text (Text and Formatted Text) and number (Decimal Number, Amount and Quantity) types. Text fields can be concatenated and numerical fields can be added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided.

Resolution

This is the standard behavior of the system.
If you need this functionality urgently you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.
