Due Date (on Sales Order) Changes on Invoice


Employee creates a sales order for a customer. Employee selects DUE DATE in the default SALES ORDER DUE DATE field.
We assume: DUE DATE is the date our customer will pick up their order. I think that's a valid assumption.
We usually fulfill the sales order a couple of days BEFORE the DUE DATE. Then we invoice the sales order, put a copy of invoice in package and have a copy of the invoice waiting for the customer when they stop in to pick up their package.
PROBLEM: The DUE DATE the employee selects in the default SALES ORDER DUE DATE field IS NOT the DUE DATE that appears in the default INVOICE DUE DATE field.
Ideas on how to fix, if at all possible.
Thanks in advance.

"Fix" something that isn't broken? The due date of the sales order, which is the date you expect the customer to pick up the order, is NOT the same as the date the invoice will be due. The invoice due date is the date you expect the invoice to be paid and is based on the combination of invoice date and payment terms, both of which are unrelated to any date on the sales order.

I expected that answer. You're right. It isn't broken. Thanks.
Question: Is there any date field on sales order that will carry over to the invoice? Ship date? Etc. Ideas on how I can get a date entered on the sales order to be the same on an invoice?

No
Have the person entering the invoice override the default due date with the date you want.
