Production Order Closing Issue


There is an issue facing during Closing order from TECO in CO02.

Unprocessed future change recs for order prevent del. flag/completion

Message No. CO688


There are still future change records or error records to be processed from the confirmation for the confirmation processes in order 2667775. Possible confirmation processes are:

Automatic goods receipt


Calculation of actual costs

Data transfer to HR

System Response

You are not meant to set the deletion flag/'completed' status for orders with future change records that have not been processed.


You should process the open future change records using

Predefined confimration process or

The CORUPROC program, by dispatching it in Customizing in a background job (dispatch background jobs: dispatching processes).

Check if incorrect goods movements or incorrect actual cost calculations exist for the order, and reprocess these if necessary:

Reprocessing incorrect goods movements

Reprocessing incorrect actual cost calculations

Now these orders are related to previous 3-4 years so how can we close the same as below error is coming in many of the orders.

    Please refer following SAP Note

    1912955 - Unable to business close orders in transaction IW32 due to message CO688

    Though it may seem to be related to PM orders only, it might work for PP Orders as well.

    Hope it helps

      The mentioned programs are meant to deal with inconsistencies in the error records due to which you are not able to close the orders. It should be fine if you execute it for orders of previous years as I don't feel these programs will anyways post any financial entries requiring you to open the closed periods of prior years. Just ensure that the order balance is zero, rest would be just fine. 😊

      If you still have apprehensions about it, do it for selected insignificant order and evaluate the results. Once comfortable, you can do it for all.

    Hello SAPFICO

    The current period in MM can be checked with transaction OMSY.

    This error leads to customising OB52 (an FI customising). This may be

    the cause of the problem (period setting/closing from the FI side).

    As per the error message long text:

    The error can have several causes. In order to eliminate the error,

    proceed as follows:

    o Check whether the posting date was entered correctly. The system

    determines the posting period by means of the date.

    o Check whether the required posting period is open for posting for

    the variant of posting period xx and account type xxx. Make sure

    that the period is open for posting.

    To do this, specify a period interval in which the required period

    for the variant of posting period xx and account type xxx is


    Please refer to note 20653 also.
