Changing the material document year logic in live system

Dear Friends,

In our existing system, MM period is from January to December, and FI period is from April to March.

Now our client wants MM period also to be from April to march.

Material document year should be incremented to next year only on April 1st (instead of Jan 1st which is existing).

Please let me know how to do it?

Will there be any impact if we do this change at this point (client is running SAP since 2010).

Regards

Thiyagaraj

    Hope you are talking about Material document number ranges in Inventory Management. They are actually Calender year specific. Can check in OMBT transaction.

    As per your statement, First month should be April for your company code i.e. Fiscal year variant must be V3 or a Copy of it.

    Can you check the Fiscal year variant assigned to your Company code? Else share MMRV transaction screenshot for your Company code.

      Current period is 01 2016 that means your Company code is assigned to Fiscal year variant V3 (Arpil to March)

      Coming to your Material document number ranges, you have maintained the year as 9999. So, system uses the number range from here for all the Material movements irrespective of the Calender year.

      Either it has to be Calender year specific or it can be irrespective of Calender year i.e. 9999. It is not possible to Maintain the number ranges Fiscal year specific (April to March) for Inventory Management.

      I am not sure about the system behavior how it reacts if you maintain the Year 2016 in OMBT for Inventory management besides 9999.

      If you have Sandbox server, you can try to maintain the same and see the system behavior.
