MM Posting Period Keeps Reverting Back

Dear Experts,

I have a weird situation that just happen at my customer, where the posting period always going back to last month for a specific company code.

Let say, this morning I check MMRV for this company code A, the current period is 06 2014.

But at noon, when I check MMRV for this company code A, the current period is going back to 05 2014.

So I close and open the period MMPV to 06 2014, but at afternoon, it is back again to 05 2014.

Again and again, like it is on interval background or somekind.

This thing does not happen to other company codes, B or C.

This is new installation for UAT. I have not check other client number, I'll update this later.

Is there somekind of background job for this? How to check this?

Thank you.

    Hi,

    Do check in Table TBTCP in field "PROGNAME" with program name SAPFM06P.


    Does if any Job exists.

    You Check the changes in AUT10 also based on T-code MMPV.

    Hi Mallinath Bheemrao Patil, there was no entry for that selection.

    Hi Jürgen L, unfortunately the log is not active. Is it suppose to be active?

    • In my IDES the log is as well not active, but in the production and QA systems it is. And your current problem is actually givning the answer to this question.

      If it is a job instead a manual change then go SM37 enter a star * in the job name and the user field

      enter a date range that includes the days where you saw the period changing, enter the ABAP RMMMINIT and execute. this way you should see all jobs that turn the period back (honestly I have never seen a job for this activity)

      If you have no technial history option to find the root cause then just send an email to all IT folks or place a system message with SM02 to ask this question. Maybe there is some miscommunication in project and one does not want that the priod closure is done as he is not finished with his tests.

    Execute transaction SCU3, enter table MARV, set the radio button to tables and execute.

    You should see the change history with old and new values along with the user ID who made the changes

    Hi All, thanks for your hints.

    I have checked the SM37 but no job for RMMMINIT from any user.

    This is testing client, and after a few days I monitored with no change, today the posting date is going back again.

    I'm still curious, but hopefuly it will not happen in production later. 😊

    Is it possible this effected by other module such as FI?

    Hi All,

    On my last effort, I do MMPI again and set the period back to 05, and then do MMPV until period 07.

    So far, the result has been satisfactory, no unexpected change, and period has been staying on.

    So I assume the problem is solved.

    Thanks for all the helps, guys! 😊
