ByD Data migration - financials

Hi Experts,

I understand that data migration for financials is run on a specific date and you can only run one source file for a specific key date.

This particular client has their financial year starting in April and they want to journal in all the opening balances from April until the migration key date.

Is that going to affect migration?

What would be the correct approach in this case?

    Hi Sebastian,

    Firstly, there are two important dates here, 1. Posting date for Initial Migration 2. Posting date for Migration

    For the first time migration usually both dates will be same.

    For subsequent migration later during the year, You can change the 2. Posting date for migration from the General ledger work center > Companies view

    Now are you referring to how to proceed with followup migrations during the year ? wheither it is possible to still migrate to 'Posting date for initial Migration' ?

    If that is the case, If you keep the periods & posting control profile available for migration postings you should be able to post the migrations.

    Do you want to post the migration for fiscal year 1st period onwards or from the last year 12th period onwards ?

    Please refer to the general guidelines under 'Cut-off Date in the Source System' & 'Set posting date' from the help document 'Migration of Financial Accounting Data'

    If you encounter any errors during the migration, Please share so that it also helps to understand what exactly you are trying to do as per your proble description

    Please let me know if you have further questions.
