Define rules for determining dates

A baseline date (for example, current date, beginning of contract) forms the basis of every date determination rule. A period to be defined is added to this baseline date.

The rules for date determination can be defined using the following dates:


A baseline date is the basic requirement for defining a rule.


If a date determination rule takes the baseline date to be the contract start date, the period to be 6 and the time unit to be months, then the system determines the date starting from the agreement date plus 6 months.


1. Enter an alphanumeric key with a maximum of 2 characters together with a textual description for the rule. The description can, for example, contain the date determination in short form.
2. Specify the baseline date.
3. Specify either a period with a time unit or a calendar ID.
