The billing frequencies have changed in Contract Administration for Microsoft Dynamics GP2010 and I have had some questions on how the Weeks option works as the documentation does not specifically explain the Weekly option. The Weekly billing does work a little different than the monthly or annual billing will work.
When you enter the Bill On Day, it is going calculate how many days from the Billing Start date, you want to start billing.
For example, if you have the following set up on the contract:
The billing dates would look like this:
This is because it is the first day of the billing cycle which starts 9/6.
Let's say instead that everything stays the same except the Bill Start is 9/15/2011 (Bill on Day still 1) the billing dates would look like this:
This is because it is the 1st day of the billing cycle or that week.
Now if we leave the billing start date to be 9/15 but we change the bill on day to be 3. The billing would look like this.
This is because the 17th is the 3rd day of the billing cycle from the start date.
When you enter a bill on day for weekly billing you can only enter a value of 1-7. The bill start date tied with the bill on day will determine what dates are used.
