year end closing

Hi friends,

I need to go ahead with the year end closing procedure. My doubt is, when we carry on the various steps, do we have to follow the steps in the production client directly.

There would be a data mismatch between development and production

client is concerned.

So can anyone help me out with some inputs

regards

soujanya

      HI

      Already if the company code is in live for that you can do the year end activities like open and close the posting period changing the fiscal year of Asset Accounting etc. But the company which is about to golive do not do this year end activities untill you have uploaded your Legacy Master Data like vendor, gl, Customer, Material etc.
