    Hi

    Hi,

    Restrict posting by Account type:

    Various account types in SAP are:-

    A u2013 Assets

    D u2013 Debtors

    K - Creditors

    M u2013 Material

    S - GL

    + - for all accounts

    in OB52 you must have at least one entry with + .

    you can restrict by account type. give account range to respective account type.do open and clso according to your requirement.

    if the 12 posting periods are open, then user can post to the any period. so open only the requied posting periods.

    Restrict posting by Authorization( users):

    In Posting period(OB52) Blank Authorization grups means Authrization is not maintained for the posting period.

    the authorisation grouping code maintaied in user profile

    (T Code: SU01- Display user) , give user name and click on disply. click on profiles tab. there you can find.

    If you want to use this authorization, proceed as follows:

    Specify an authorization group for the allowed posting periods which are to be protected.

    Define the authorization which you want to assign to selected employees by listing the authorization groups allowed.

    Assign this authorization using the corresponding profile.

    Hope this will help you.

      Hi,

      First you need to create Authorization Group (Ex. Z001) in Table V_TBRG under Authorization Object F_BKPF_BUP. (You can use T Code SM30)

      Go To T Code PFCG and add the above Authorization Object to the User Role and give the authorization for Group Z001. (You can take the help of BASIS people)

      Maintain the above created Authorization Group Z001 in OB52.

      This is will solve your purpose.

    You can do it in OB52, give the period range as the period you want.

    It is for this purpose only we close and open posting periods at regular intervals. You can open new period with from and to option and allow/restrict different account types.

    Hi,

    While declaring posting period variant there is last column where we can define the authorisations.

    IMG > Financial Accounting > Financial Accounting Global Settings > Document> Posting Periods > Open and Close Posting Periods

    TCode: OB52

    Thanks,

    Prithwiraj.
