Description of the date that is used for the invoice date when you transfer a quote to an invoice or when you transfer an order to an invoice in Microsoft Dynamics GP

INTRODUCTION

This article describes what date is used for the invoice date when you transfer a quote to an invoice or when you transfer an order to an invoice in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

MORE INFORMATION

When you click the blue, right-arrow button next to the Date field in the Sales Transaction Entry window, the Sales Date Entry window appears. Then, Microsoft Dynamics GP looks for an invoice date in the Sales Date Entry window. If a date exists in the Invoice Date field, Microsoft Dynamics GP creates the invoice by using the date in the Invoice Date field. If no date exists in the Invoice Date field, Microsoft Dynamics GP creates the invoice by using the system date on the local computer. 

Note To open the Sales Transaction Entry window, point to Sales on the Transactions menu, and then click Sales Transaction Entry

If Advanced Distribution in Microsoft Dynamics GP is registered, the "Update Invoice Date on First Print" setting may affect the invoice date. 

Note To use the "Update Invoice Date on First Print" setting, follow these steps: 
1. Use the appropriate method: 
• In Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0, point to Tools on the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu, point to Sales , and then click Sales Order Processing . 
• In Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0, point to Setup on the Tools menu, point to Sales , and then click Sales Order Processing

 2. In the Sales Order Processing Setup window, click Fulfillment Order/Invoice . 

 3. In the Sales Fulfillment Order/Invoice Setup window, click the lookup button next to the Fulfillment Order/Invoice ID field. 

 4. In the Sales Type IDs window, click a type ID that is used for the invoice, and then click Select

 5. To use the "Update Invoice Date on First Print" setting, click to select the Update Invoice Date on First Print check box in the Sales Fulfillment Order/Invoice Setup window. If you do not want to use the "Update Invoice Date on First Print" setting, click to clear the Update Invoice Date on First Print check box in the Sales Fulfillment Order/Invoice Setup window. 

 If the Update Invoice Date on First Print check box is selected, Microsoft Dynamics GP assigns the system date of the local computer to the invoice date and to the document date when you print the invoice document. 

For example, no date exists in the Invoice Date field in the Sales Date Entry window. Additionally, the Update Invoice Date on First Print check box is selected. When you transfer a quote or an order to an invoice on May 1, the invoice date is May 1. However, if you print the invoice document on May 3, the document date and the invoice date in the document are updated to May 3.
