Fiscal year variant creation in SAP APO

Hi Ada ,

Thanks for sharing SAP Note 737230 to clear my all doubts related to Technical period formation .

Could you please help me how to create fiscal year variant for the below requirement : -

New time bucket profile should create such a way that it should display in week format ( Data View ) by considering a split of A & B part at the starting and end of every particular month ,

For example : -

Week  Mo  Tu  We Th  Fr  Sa  SU

44       28    29   30  31  1    2   3

45        4      5     6    7    8    9  10

46       11    12   13  14  15  16  17

47       18     19   20  21  22  23  24

48        25    26  27    28  29  30  1

In above example , week 44 consist of Oct'13 ending and starting of Nov '13 period and in week 48 it has Nov '13 ending and starting
of Dec'13 Period . Business wants Week 44 and Week 48 should split into A & B format for that individual week .

Also tell me how this setting will be applicable across the year like 2013 , 2014 , 2015 etc as we are defining fiscal year period for a particular year itself or it will automatically applicable across the year .

Regards,

Sesh

    Hi Sesh,

    To meet your requirement, you'll have to create a fiscal year variant for every period you need.

    For example, in OB29, for year 2013 you should have entries for:

    Month Date

    10       27

    10       31

    11         3

    11       10

    11       17

    11       24

    11       30

    12         1

    12         8

    ...

    The fiscal year variant should be year dependent, and you'll have to create it for every years, and should always be created for one year before your planning horizon and one year after your planning horizon.

    BR, Ada
