Migration of last five years data on a new client

Hi all,

We recently hived off a division from our company. We had 9 company codes out of which we have hived off 3 company codes.

We have created a separate client & a separate configuration set for the 3 hived off company codes. We would like to transfer last 5 years data line item wise to the new client pertaining to only 3 company codes.

We have FI & CO modules only implemented throughout the 9 company codes.

Pls advise on how to go about this data migration.

    Create seperate Fiscal year Variants for each of the company codes and open the fiscal year / periods in OB52 for the last 5 years / Also manintain fiscal years in controlling also.

    Ensure period opening for all account types.

    Now when you upload balances, use LSMW for data migration into each of the fiscal year. Probably after each fiscal year you need to open the next fiscal year, other wise you might have an issue in asset upload.
