0FISCPER3 - Default to last closed period in Report Variable

Hi all,

We have a requirement in our reports to default the Posting Period to last closed period.

In the InfoCube we have 0CALMONTH (In Period) and also 0FISCPER3 (Posting Period). The values for Posting Period varies from 1 to 16.

What is the functionality behind Posting Period ?

How can we find the last closed period as months are 12 and Posting period are 16 ?

Kindly clarify.

    The fiscal year variant contains the number of posting periods in the fiscal year and the number of special periods.

    You can define a maximum of 16 posting periods for each fiscal year in the Controlling component (CO).

    The fiscal year variant specifies the number of periods and special periods in a fiscal year and how the SAP System is to determine the assigned posting periods.

    You have 12 periods in SAP and also four special periods. These periods are stored in what is called the fiscal year variant (K1, K2, K3 and K4)

    You can use the function module DATE_TO_PERIOD_CONVERT to get the period by passing the date.
