Hi, all,

I am trying to create order using LSMW with

Object 0090 Sales documents

Method 0000

Program Name RVINVB10

Program Type D Direct Input

The issue is at the date of

Req. D 2008.07.17

I prepared the date as format of 2008.07.17.

But get the following error, any thoughts?

Hello Koffer,

It could be any of these dates:

Quotation/Inquiry is valid from(ANGDT).

Date until which bid/quotation is binding (valid-to date)(BNDDT).

Customer purchase order date(BSTDK).

Valid-from date (outline agreements, product proposals)/valid to(GUEBG/GUEEN).

Pricing date.

Plz check all the above dates.

Hi, Raghuram Saripa...

From the error message, it shows that the format is not correct for one date field.

I have not touched other fields.

I will add these fields to have a test.

I think LSMW's dont accept the dots in between the dates.

try to put the date as 20080717 in your load sheet and try.

i had the same problem that was solved like this.

hope this helps.

HI, Arijeet Biswas

If I set the date to 20080717,

the converted date will be

VDATU Requested delivery date 2008.09.

This field is defined with a 8 char.

20080717 also makes 8 chr's. and why would it convert to 2008.09. ? Dont know but it worked for me.

After setup all the date fields, it seems moving forward...
