Hello gurus:

I need guidance on the first consolidation of a year (I mean year 2)

Our customer has SAP ECC and has the following steps like business proccess:

1. End of year (ECC) and final consolidation of the year (31.12.year1)

2. In Januay year2, the client creates documents with special periods in year1 (period 13)

3. End of month in January of year2 and first cosolidation of the year.

Doubt is at this point,

Is it necessary to realize a new consolidation in month 12, year1?

What is the ideal process considering these documents in special periods?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

Marco

Hi Marco,

I personally prefer re-doing it in December as it keeps time dimension cleaner, and most of the time these additional periods will have adjustments only and not usual movements. This would also avoid changes in reports.

But again, it's a business decision. If they require to report delta changes in month 13,14,15 or 16 you need to add those to time dimension.

No, things are different for nw and Ms version.... please remove ms tag.

In bpc you can have also extra periods after normal months or you can append extra periods to December.
