Posting date of the document used to clear this line item.


The posting date of the clearing document is required for updating G/L accounting:

Every open item causes two updates in the general ledger. For an invoice, for example, the debit side of the receivables account is updated when the invoice item is posted, and the credit side is updated when it is cleared.

Because no special line item is created within the clearing document for clearing the invoice, and only the clearing information is entered in the invoice item, the second update can only come from invoice item data. For this reason, the clearing date is recorded as the date on which the second posting is to be made in the general ledger.


The posting date of the clearing is automatically set when clearing takes place.
