Hello ,

If you want to set a billing data not always today date, then

the standard way to maintain the correct sequence date/invoice number

is to set the billing date by the transaction VFP1, table TVFKD.

During invoice creation the system reads TVFKD basing on the

number range assigned to that invoice type, then it sets the billing

date maintained there. If you just need to set billing date = today date

then you could set the routine 11 in customizing copy control.

There isn't any standard check or userexit on the billing date.

There are other countries where the sequence number/date is mandatory.

The official solution offered by SAP is to maintain VFP1, then during

billing the system proposes the date from here and the user should not

change it.

Please award points if helpful !
