I would like to know if there is any configuration exist to restrict the below scenario

1. Physical inventory doc was created on 31st Oct with planned count date as 31st Oct.

2. Count was entered in MI04 on 1st Nov .

3. when we are trying to post the differences on 1st Nov with posting date as 1st Nov, system gave a error message that posting period for Oct is closed.(Posting to previous period is not allowed as per MMRV setting).

4.However when changing the posting date to 31st Oct,physical inventory doc got posted.

I am wondering how system allowed to post in the previous period when the posting is not allowed.

Pls advise if there is way to restrict such postings as business do not want to post anything in the previous period once the period is closed.

It is standard SAP design that physical inventory can post to the previous period despite of not allowing previous period posting in MMRV.

Just have your Finance colleagues close the period for Material postings related accounts at the same time when you roll your MM period.

see OSS note 1134322 - MMRV and return postings to the previous period
