Greetings !

While posting GR with reference to Purchase Order, I am getting following error

"Posting only possible in periods 2006/12 and 2006/11 in company code 1000.

Accounting 1 view of Material master shows Current Period is 12 2006.

    Hi,

    I hope this exercise you are doing in IDs or test client.If yes then you can only post the GR in between 1-Feb-2007 to 31-March-2007 date.

    to post the GR in the current period(2011/02) i.e in the May-2011 you have to close the periods from 2006/12 to 2011/01 through MMPV transaction for the particular company code.

    After executing this activity for the particular company code,now check in MMRV:

    It will show Current period.........02..2011

    Previous Period......01..2011

    To allow posting for the previous period you may check on the checkbox"Allow posting to previous period"

    Hope this will solve your problem.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Bijay Pradhan

    • Dear Bijay,

      My problem is solved. Thanks a lot for step by step guidance. Appreciate it.

      Although, the problem is resolved, I am still seeking information on following. Will you be able to help?

      My current period (in MM03) is 05 2011. It means that fiscal year period is 05 2011 right? Today, we are into May - 5th month of 2011.

      Does it mean that fiscal year and calender year are same in specific case of my test system? Please confim.

      Regds.,

    Hi

    your current period is 12 2006.

    its correct,In MM we have to close last period and open next period and only two period can open in MM and once closed period we cannot reopen it ( possible but never suggest),material master always shows current period

    now you are in 2011 period ,if you want to do GRN enter 1-12-2006 or 1-3-2006 and do GRN system may accept it

    TO VIew current period in mm t-cdoe MMRV

    to close MM perios t-code -MMPV

    Even you can search in forum how to close and open MM period you will get lots of things to guide

    Please check the current period in MMRV.As per the error message described here the current period shows 2010/12 for ur company code but your GRN posting date is not in 2010/12.you can post the GRN in follwing ways.

    1)you can change the GRN posting date to back date i.e any date in period 2010/12 if back posting is allowed for ur company code.to check it please use Txn MMRV.

    2)You can close the old period and open new period through Txn MMPV one by one and open the current period 2011/02 so that you will be able to post the GRN in current date.

    first please close the previous period MMPV.

    then open the new period OB52 if necessary.

    please note, period close must one by one.
