FM Fiscal Year Variant

Hi Everyone,

We have 2 company code which has two different fiscal year variant. One of them 1000 uses FY variant K4 ( from january to december ) and the other company has FY variant V3 ( from april to march ). We have created 2 FM area and assigned them to company codes. Our client wants to start budget control from april for both company codes 1000 and 2000. But we made a mistake. in FM customizing under public sector, we assigned FY variant K4 for company code 1000 and FY variant for company code 2000. Everything is ok for company code 2000 but I want to change FY variant for 1000. FM area 1000 is deactive now in live system. How can I change fiscal year year variant for 1000? or Is it better to create a new FM area and using this FM area for 1000??

CC : 1000

FM Area : 1000 ( is deactive in live system )

FY Variant ( January - December )

CC : 2000

FM Area : 2000 ( is active in live system )

FY Variant : ( April - March )

Best Regards

    If you use variant with special periods, then, normally, variant assigned to company code and that assigned to FM area should match.

    • It's a serious exercise and you have to be ready to face possible consequences, when you are about to reconstruct the data. Technically speaking, you can delete the data via FM_DLFM and then run reconstructions programs, but you have to make sure that you won't encounter any problem during this process.
