(JPN) Mark purchase invoices for consolidation and calculate due dates [AX 2012]

Updated: October 18, 2012

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

You can consolidate several purchase invoices each month. You must mark purchase invoices for consolidation, calculate due dates for payment, and post the consolidated invoice. The payment due date is based on the cutoff day that you specify, and on the holidays that you set up. If you specify the document date, which is the original transaction date, the due date is based on the document date instead of the invoice date.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Purchase orders > All purchase orders. Double-click a purchase order. For more information, see Create a purchase order.

  2. In the Purchase order form, click Header view.

  3. Select the Target of consolidation check box to indicate that the invoice for the purchase order will be consolidated later.


    This field is available only if you select the Consolidated invoice for vendor check box in the Accounts payable parameters form, and if the Consolidation day field in the Vendors form is not set to zero.

  4. Click the Price and discount FastTab.

  5. In the Terms of payment field, select the terms of payment that have been marked for holiday due date control. For more information, see (JPN) Set up the terms of payment and the cutoff day for a vendor.

    To view the most recently consolidated invoice identification number and the date of the sales order, click Postings on the General tab. The Consolidation ID and Date fields display the last consolidated invoice identification number, and the date.

  6. On the Invoice tab, click Invoice.

  7. In the Vendor invoice form, click Post > Post to post the purchase order.

  8. Close the forms.

  9. Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendors > All vendors.

  10. Select the vendor account for the posted purchase invoice, and then click Transactions.

  11. In the Vendor transactions form, select the posted invoice, and then click the Payment tab. The due date for the selected invoice is displayed in the Due date field.

  12. Close the forms.
