Use document date for vendor invoices [AX 2012]

Updated: March 7, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

If you select this option, the vendor invoice and associated tax will be dated with the specified document date. The inventory value will be updated as of the date that the vendor invoice is posted. To secure the balance on the date in General ledger, the purchase offset account is used to post any differences in amounts between the two dates. The balance of this account will therefore show an accrual between the vendor and inventory regarding the vendor invoice.

If you do not select this option, the vendor invoice, associated tax, and inventory value will use the date that the vendor invoice is posted. If a document date is specified when the invoice is entered, the date will instead be saved in the vendor transactions table and in the invoice journal table.

This check box works with the Calculation date type field in the General ledger parameters form. For more information, see General ledger parameters (form).


This check box affects only vendor invoices that are posted in the Vendor invoice form. It does not apply to vendor invoices that are entered and posted in a journal.
