    Hi,

    Automatic Program for MMPV

    The client I am working with has an outdated training client. The current posting period right now is November 2004. I have two questions:

    1. Does anyone know of a shortcut to get the current posting period updated versus opening each month from Nov. '09 until today.

    2. Is there an automatic program that can be set up to change to current period without having to go in manually every month to initiate MMPV.

    In IMG, you can go to Logistics - General => Material Master => Basic Settings => Maintain Company Codes for Materials Management. You can then enter the periods that you need to have open.

    As far as running something monthly, if you are working only in one general region of the world, you can run program RMMMPERI from SE38 at 00:01:00 on day 1 of each period. You'll need to create a selection variant with a variable to tell it which period to use.

    We run into problems with MMPV/RMMMPERI, and have to actually manually schedule it each month. I run it three times - one to open the periods for our Asian plants (at 09:00:00 my time, on the last day of my month), one to open periods for our European plants (at 16:00:00 my time, on the last day of my month), and one to open periods for our US plants (at 00:01:00 my time, on the first day of my month). I've not been able to schedule recurring jobs for the Asian and European plants, because I can't figure out a way to set up a recurrence for the last day of the month. I can do it on day 1, or day 28, or something specific like that, but since the last day of the month can fall on day 28, 30, or 31, I'm not able to do that.

      In OMSY, you can update the period to current period only once i.e. when new client is created and all settings are send there. If any activity i.e. material master is created, its setting can be initiated.

      Now you need to use MMPV, to do month by month closing till the current period. LSMW will also not work on this transaction.

    How you have got the posting period error in between of the month , still it is 3 days left for the period /month end .

    Check the posting date you have entered

    Hi,

    This is due to the Periods Posting shifting change

    Check your Maintained Fiscal year variants K4 periods ( t.code OB29)

    Check your company code assigned fiscal year varinats in OBY6 t.code.

    Then check your calendor year Fiscal year maintained in OB29.

    In your Fiscal year varinats K4 have maintained No.of perids in monthly vice No.of days for posting

    example:

    Month Day Period Year shift

    1 23 1 0

    2 20 2 0

    3 27 3 0

    4 24 4 0

    5 22 5 0

    6 26 6 0 ( Due to the June month No.of days 26 maintained only it gives the Error)

    7 24 7 0

    Now change the No .of days in 6 th month as upto 30 it will allow to post the periods.

    Posting perids for the every month desired by FI accounting site, if they have settled the amount in every end of months in 4 to 5 days. They have set the fiscal year variants based on the perids. So end of the month posting is not possible. For that entry of transaction will allow to post only in the next months in your case 7th July.

    Thanks,

    Thiru
