In OMSY, Peiod is 04,2008

In MMRV, Current Period is 04,2008.

I have checked Allow posting to previous period.

Now, while doing MIGO

I got the error

Postings only possible in 03/2008 and 04/2008 only..

I don't know the settings to maintain in V3 in OB29 Transaction.

If any one can explain me this, it would be a great help to me.

    Go to transaction OB29. Then select the fiscal year variant and upon selection the variant, click on "Period". This will open up dialog box asking for the fiscal year for which you want to configure. Enter the fiscal year and hit enter. This will open up the calendar table to enter the period entry which has 4 columns: Month, Day, Period and Year Shift.

    Make sure you are entering the correct Year Shift. Logic for the Year Shift is as follows.

    +1 if the fiscal year is later than the calendar year

    -1 if the fiscal year is before the calendar year.

    0 if the fiscal year is same as the calendar year.

    One example of year shift:

    Say, if you are configuring the fiscal year 2007 (April 2007 to March 2008), then January 2008 is your 10th period. Here you hare to enter -1 in Year Shift Column only for January to March (10-12 period) as your fiscal year 2007 is less than the calendar year 2008.
