Dear Experts,

we use the program /SAPAPO/TS_PLOB_MAINTAIN to create CVC in background, but daily the job is getting failed with the error 'Period for date cannot be determined'.

Data source is info provider, kindly provide your expertise here in fixing this. Many Thanks.

will it be a problem with planning area initialization or issue with time series object creation, if it so kindly advise on how to check the same and fix, since I am unaware of this.

*also we use dynamic date in the variant for taking the start and end date for info provider and the error is always with the start date, 'Period for date <start date> cannot be determined'.

Hi Yasar,

1.Please check the planning area that it is initialised successfully for much wider range.

2.Are you using Fiscal year variant.?

3. Check if note 1825730 is helpful

Thanks & Best Regards,

Hi Sonali,

Thanks a lot for the information and update, seems the symptoms are in line with the note suggested.

Also, 1. planning area has been initialized wider (three months before and three months after)

2. yes, we are using Fiscal variant (and there is no data in the info cube for the selection).

But I have quiet confusion that, we have different variants in the program /SAPAPO/TS_PLOB_MAINTAIN for different region (APAC, Europe and US). Only the variant for APAC is getting failed daily but not for other region (EMEA selection have data in the cube whereas for US no data in the cube then too getting completed).

Also if we execute the on next day morning the job is completing, I could not able to understand this, could you please help me in understanding and can you also update if we still can go for this correction note.Many Thanks.
