PartTran table - TranDate vs SysDate

I don’t understand what situation would result in these dates being different for the same transaction, and what each date means. Please note I’m specifically interested in MFG-CUS transactions. The help in BAQ designer is pretty vague…


SysDate is the actual date the transaction was entered
TranDate is the date you “say” the transaction occurred on.

Specifically for MFG-CUS transactions, the TranDate is set to the ShipDate from the packing slip, so if you enter a shipment and change the ship date, or come back on another day to finalize the shipment, the TranDate and SysDate will be different.
