KEDR deletion flag

Former Member

Dear experts,

I come to you with a question about the deletion flag which is possible to set in KEDR (characteristics derivation: display rule values):

If I check the SAP help it is said that:

"Deletion indicator"

With this indicator, you can limit the validity period of specific derivations.

If this indicator is set, the rule entry is treated as deleted from the "Valid from" date onward.

If an entry is no longer valid generally, then it should be deleted from the table.

Now, my question for you is: which is the date to be considered as "valid from"?

Is it the Creation date or Posting date?

It is a little bit different as creation date and posting date are usually different.

Thank you for your help.

Luca.

Hi

The valid from date will be the date onwards which you would like this entry to be ignored...

So, if your posting date falls after this date, this derivation entry will be ignored

Hi,

thank you for the clarification. Let me draw the scenario.

I set "valid from" date today 01.03.2011 (this month)

I have an invoice with posting date 22.02.2011 (last month)

Clearly, creation date in COPA will be today.

Now, according to you clarifications, the rule will not be ignored, as the posting date is February, this rule will be applied.

Have i understood corretly?

Thank you again,

Luca.

Hi

KEDR - ATTRIBUTES tab - Check box "Maintain Entries using validity Date"

Once you set the check box ON, and go to the Rule Values tab, you will see 2 fields (Valid From & Deleted from this date)

See here... [http://img846.imageshack.us/i/screenshot002t.jpg/]

If the "deleted" indicator" has not been set - It means the Date from which this entry is valid.

If the "deleted" inicator has been set: - It means Date from which this entry is no longer valid.

Thank you,

yes, it is the same tab I was looking at.

My question was about the nature of this date, if it has to be considered the posting date of the document or the creation date in SAP. As you said, it is the posting date.

Thank you again.
