    hi

    to open and close posting periods use TCODE:OB52. here u can give from which period to which period you want to open for posstiong.

    normally in the SAP we can give up to 4 special periods.Special posting periods that subdivide the last regular posting period for closing operations.

    When posting to special periods, you must take the following into consideration:

    The posting date must fall within the last regular posting period.

    You have to enter the special periods in the document header in the Period field, since the special periods cannot be determined automatically by the system.

    Hi,

    Apart from this,you need to take care of the posting period variant for your company code.

    In OB52 ,you may find various posting period variants.You have to check the same in Transaction "OBY6" for your company code and then opened the periods in OB52.

    Reward points if ithelps.

    Regards

    Hi,

    Generally opening and closing of periods is done in month end, where we open the next period and close the previous period. It is done by super user..

    Before closing the period you need to take care of all the mothend closing activites example:-

    Depreciation posting

    Interest Posting

    Recurring entry posting

    T-code: OB52 is used in config you can also use S_ALR_87003642 - Open and Close Posting Periods for enduser or super user.

    Best Regards

    HI,

    Tcode is ob52

    here we generally provide the following details

    a/c type from a/c to a/c from period year to period year from period year to period

    + 1 2007 12 2007 13 2007 16

    + implies it applicable to all account types

    generally we can have maximum 4 special periods and total no of periods(normal+special) should not exceed 16

    generally we use special periods for year end adjustments like tax adjustments

    if it is useful assign me points
