Period of Books

Hi Experts,

I have 2 inquiries regarding closing of books in OB52. Kindly refer below.

1) Is it possible to set a background schedule for the closing of books? For example at 10pm, background schedule will automatically run to close the book.

2) Currently, we close the books as shown in the illustration below below. But now, we want to close selected GL accounts only for a given period. Kindly advise how this is done in SAP standard. Ex. From GL account 100000 to 100099, we only need to close the period for GL accounts 100015, 100025, 100028, 100050 and 100097. Do we have to insert new rows for all the GL accounts? So if we have 99 GL accounts, we have to insert 99 rows for account type S?

XYZ + 12 2013 12 2014 XYZ A ZZZZZZZZZZ 12 2013 12 2014 XYZ D ZZZZZZZZZZ 12 2013 12 2014 XYZ K ZZZZZZZZZZ 12 2013 12 2014 XYZ S ZZZZZZZZZZ 12 2013 12 2014

Thank you.

    HI Elli

    For the first part, schedule an automatic background job using standard program RFPERIOD_CLOSE and suitable variants

    For the second part, yes, you will need seperate lines in OB52.

    Hi Friend

    It is not possible to schedule the job for changing the period . You have to manually do this.

    It is possible to use multiple lines for the same account type. You can use different GL account for each line with the variant that you have assigned to ur company code.
