Hello Everyone,

There is a requirement to upload sales history from a file to BW.

In the sales history file, all the calendar date are fiscal calendar date. It needs to be converted to normal calendar date during the transfer. Does anyone know how to do it?

      Get the fiscal calendar date from the file. Using the date calculate the first day of that corresponding period. For this you can use the function module 'FIRST_DAY_IN_PERIOD_GET'.

      Then with the first date of the period add the value in the datefield of your data to it which will give you the result.

      For example, if your record has 20090504 fiscal calendar date.

      Period - 005 and Year - 2009.

      If First day of 5th period of 2009 - 20090503.

      If you add 3 to '20090503' you will get the fourth day of the period in normal date.

      data: firstday type sy-datum,

      nthday type sy-datum,

      day(2) type i,

      result type sy-datum.

      day = nthday+6(2).

      result = firstday + day - 1.

      Hope this helps you.

    hi Bin

    Use FM "G_POSTING_DATE_OF_PERIOD_GET" and pass parameter Fiscal Date and Fiscal Variant ( e: g V3 ) and you will get the corresponding Calender date. this FM available in your BW also.

    Or in SE#& search for the FM in BI.
