Current Financial Period


I would like to be able to return the current financial period using the DI API. I can return all the periods using the example given in the help documentation but don't know how to identify the current one. Am I missing something obvious?

Manu thanks

    If you're working with UI API 2005, then use


    to retrieve the currect period.

    If you're working with UI API 2007, then you cannot retrieve the current period has it doesn't apply to SAP Business One 2007A.



    Current Period removed.


    In all SAP Business One versions up to 2005 A SP1, there is 'current period setting indicating the period enabled for data entry and posting. One period only can be set as current.

    From 2006 A, version on all periods will be enabled. Current period setting will be no longer used.

    Impact on Add-Ons

    When add-on will try to read out value from Company.CurrentPeriod, instead of period value, it will receive numeric value '-1'.

    Possible Solution

    Adjust the add-on to not use CurrentPeriod property.
