Run FINS_SWITCH_TO_OPEN_ITEM as on a past date


We are in S4 -1809. I'm trying to turn on open item management on a GL account after transactions are posted.

Here is the scenario.

GL account has numerous transactions starting year 2020.

Trying to run FINS_SWITCH_TO_OPEN_ITEM with switch on date as of 01/01/2019.

When I tested on few GL accounts in quality systems, I did not get any errors and the system is turning on OIM and I'm able to clear the account via F-03.

Is this ok to turn on the Open item management as of a previous year date or will it have any other issue in the future. I remember it was not this easy in ECC or New GL.
