    Hi sap,

    Find the explanation for each.

    0Fiscyear is finacial year. in some countries financial year starts in Jan, some countries it is April like.Unlike calander year which always strats with Jan.

    0FISCPER3 is posting period. If you finacial year start in April. Posting period 1 means April.

    0Fiscvar - Fiscal year varient. 0fiscvar specifies where your finacial year starts,

    Example 0Fiscvar V3 means finacial year starts in April.

    Youcan define your own fiscal year varients also.

    Fiscper is Fiscal year / Period. Here you are combining posting period and fiscal year. format will be like this 001.2006 .

    Fiscal period is another time characteristic useful e.g. when year vary from calendar year. In company where I work, the fiscal year begins in October and ends in September next year. In that case there are such entries in time dimensions:

    0CALMONTH 09.2006 = 0FISCPER 012.2006

    0CALMONTH 10.2006 = 0FISCPER 001.2007

    0CALMONTH 11.2006 = 0FISCPER 002.2007


    and so on.

    The 0FISCVARNT is compounded InfoObject of 0FISCPER (additional key) used to distinguish various variants of fiscal year. For example we have two companies in one data warehouse and first is using these variant that I mention above and the second is using fiscal year variant compliant to calendar year ('K4' in our case). So we have such situation when 0FISCPER 001.2007 means 10.2006 month/year for one company code and 01.2007 month/year for the second company code. So first uses one variant ('Z9') and the second uses another variant ('K4'), which tells how to interprete this 0FISCPER value.

    0FISCYEAR is a part of 0FISCPER which contains Fiscal Year, and 0FISCPER3 contains Fiscal Period only.

    Hope it would be clear for You now.

    Hope this Helps
