    Hello Nivas,

    The data transaction OB52 is based on the view
    V_T001B - Posting Periods: Specify Time Intervals

    which in turn is based on the data in the table
    T001B - Posting periods allowed

    The table T001B has the option of logging data changes. You can check
    if this option is set on your system as follows:
    Transaction: SE12
    -> Enter T001B in the 'Object name' text box
    -> Select the 'Tables' radio button
    -> Click on the 'Display' button
    -> Click on the 'Technical settings' button
    -> Check if the 'Log data changes' flag (*DD09V-PROTOKOLL)
    has been selected

    Setting this flag marks that entries of this table should be logged.
    Please note that the flag 'Log data changes' alone does not cause the
    table changes to be logged. The SAP system must be started with a
    profile containing the parameter rec/client. The existing logs can be
    displayed with Transaction Table history (SCU3).

    Regards, Gordon

    Hello Srinivas,

    You just analyse the change history data from withiin OB52 T code it self. Go to OB52 --> Menu Utilities > Change logs.

    Just enter a start data and an end date then click execute button.

    It is even possible to include archived logs, but this is very time consuming.

    I hope it helps!

    Thanks & Regards,

    Lakshmi S
