I have a newly created S4HANA trial instance, following demo pdf section 2.2.2 to "Open Inventory Management Period" (company 1710, period 12 fiscal year 2017) and getting this error in "Close Period for Material Master Records" app. It looks like the demo guide has some missing information, can you advise what is missing.

Hi Stephen,

I assume you mean the SAP S/4HANA 1709 Fully-Activated Appliance (and the respective demo guide) ?

The guide indeed contains an error since the Master Data group with the Close Periods app is not visible by default for user S4H_MM_DEM.

You can get to the app either by using user S4H_MM (passwort Welcome1). This user has the group Master Data Administration with the Close Periods tile assigned, however, you will experience longer initial Fiori loading times.

Or you can add the Close Period app to user S4H_MM_DEM in the Me area (people icon left upper corner) > App Finder > Search for the app or navigate to the catalog Master Data Administration > Pin the app Close Periods to your launchpad.

We will release an update to the guide shortly.

Best, Joerg

I accessed the app by search as you stated but I got the error in the close period app that 2017 is not the current year.

Stephen,

You can bypass it by pressing the "Check" icon or pressing "ENTER" key on your keyboard.

Thanks for your assistance, I got past the message, obviously inexperience with the slightly strange ways of SAP ... its not your typical web GUI and demo document could be more helpful.
