**Always in Period ** - If this option is set, the fields "Pmt. Discount Date Period from" and " Pmt. Discount Date Period to" are editable.

|Posting Date||Enter the date that is to appear in the payment proposal as the posting date. The value is transferred to the "Posting Date" field of the payment proposal and can still be changed there as long as the status of the payment proposal is "Open" or " Payment Done". If the "As Entered" payment discount option is used, the posting date used here will also be taken into account when marking entries for payment. If the posting date is after a payment discount or payment discount tolerance date, for example, a corresponding entry would not be marked for payment in the payment proposal.|

The value is transferred to the "Execution Date" field of the payment proposal and can still be changed there as long as the status of the payment proposal is "Open".

If this is the case, the date will be set to the current date when the corresponding payment is executed.|
|Payment Account Type||Select the account type of the contra account of the payment proposal (G/L account or bank account). If you want to transfer a payment file to a bank, "Bank Account" must be selected here as the balanced account type.|
|Payment Account No.||In this field, you enter the account no. of the orderer bank or of a G/L Account. The selection list displayed in each case depends on the account type selected in the "Payment Account Type" field: G/L Account or Bank Account.|
|Use Payment Type Code||If you enter a payment type code here, it will be entered for all payments of the payment proposal instead of the payment type code assigned in the entry via the payment method.|
|Line Sorting||Set the sorting of the payment lines in the payment proposal. The following sortings are possible: Due date (=preset default value), Document Date, Document No., External Document No.. A subsequent change of the sorting in already existing payment lines is not possible.|
|Summarize per Pmt. Head||If this field is checked, only one entry will be created per payment proposal header on the account entered in the "General" tab of the payment proposal card and not one posting per cleared entry.|
|Show all open entries||If you activate this field, the application will display all open entries in a payment proposal and not only the entries that are due for payment. The due entries will be automatically marked for payment (clearing will be set), the other entries will not be marked at first and can be selected for payment manually afterwards.|
|With Backlog||If you activate this field, payment proposal cards will also be created for those suppliers for whom there is a total overpayment (= backlog) due to the entries due (e.g. credit memo amounts > invoice amounts).|
|Association Pmt.||The selection of this option is only available if you have licensed the module "OPplus Associations". If this field is activated, the due entries of all vendors belonging to an association will be considered.|
|Cust. / Vend. Linking||The selection of this option is only available if you have licensed the module "OPplus Associations". If this field is activated, also the due entries of a customer belonging to the customer/vendor linking will be considered in the payment proposal.|
|Only clearing accounts||If a credit/debit settlement is to take place here, this option can be selected additionally. The application will then create a payment proposal only for all vendors or customers that belong to a group. Other vendors or customers will not be taken into account. In order for this option to be selected and to take effect, the "Cust./Vend. Linking" field must be activated.|
|include "on Hold"||If this option is selected, items marked "on Hold" will also be included in the payment proposal. However, these will not be marked for clearing in the payment lines and will therefore continue to be displayed in black.|
|Save as Template||If you want to save the payment proposal as a new template or overwrite an existing template with the current values, you can use the existing AssistEdit button to access the list of payment proposal templates. For details on the usage and further facilities of these templates, please refer to the Pmt. Export -> Pmt. Proposal Template chapter.|
|Template Description||This field shows you the description of a selected template. If you overwrite the value here, the Description field in the corresponding Pmt. Proposal Template will be updated when you press the OK button.|
|Description||This field is preset with the value "Pmt. Proposal of Work Date" and can be changed at this point. The value is transferred to the "Description" field of the payment proposal and can also still be changed there as long as the status of the payment proposal is not "Posted".|
When you confirm the report request page with OK, a new vendor payment proposal is created based on the filter criteria and options set up. The numbering is based on the Payment Proposal number series defined in the Pmt. Export Setup.
You can then call up and edit the generated payment proposal (e.g. ZV000068Z) via the list of generated payment proposals. A call of the payment proposals can also be found in the Role Center:
If a customer payment proposal is executed, the system checks whether there is a balance due that matches the customer account type: "Is there anything due for payment from the customer?"
Provided that the postprocessing starts during the creation of a payment proposal and the payment notes are created, this will be displayed in a dialog box. Therefore, please wait until the creation is completed.
