I added what I worked also in a blogspot where people can go through waht is varaint configuration blogspot is *http://sapsd-beyond.blogspot.com/2008/06/sap-sd-variant-configuration.html*. I hope that will give you little information about my way of working out to learn VC.
I was asking some questions regarding this VC from one month. Laxmipathi sent related material that is usefull but that also did not served for my purpose.
Any how - Here another question.
I am working to learn Variant configuration For that as prerequisities We need to setup configurations in FI (Fiscal year) and MM (maintain company codes for materials management) as well. I maintained fiscal year (Calander year - using V3) I maintained like giving values in periods and perioss text using http://www.hareshpradhan.com/SAP/SAP%20Notes6.htm guide lines. Assigned fiscal year variant to company (at company code).
Then going to MM (maintain company codes for materials management) and entering periods as 12, year as 2008 and clicking check box - ADP.
*Error: You have entered an invalid period for company code.*
I request you to please try this one and give me suggestions to move forward.
Thank you very much.
Max points assured for good explanation after working out your scenario 😉
