MFBF error - "Posting period 01/2012 is not open"

Hi Experts,

We are facing a peculiar situation wherby production people (PP) are unable to post assembly backflush in MFBF for repetative manufacturing

for the month of March 2012.

They are getting the error " Posting period 01/2012 is not open"

The MM period is currently open for March 2012.

The FI / CO period is open till March 2012.

The Std Cost for March 2012 has been released and transactions has already been posted.

However we did open the New year i.e. April 2012 for a brief period to run std cost for Apr 2012. and later closed the MM / FI and CO Period.

Due to the above PP are unable to post Consumption/ activities for March 2012.

Eagerly awaiting your replies.

    If the period is closed in MM, you can't post the transactions related to Material .

    Please check it in MMPV and OB52, whether the period of April/2012 is opened not.

    If not, you need to open to post consumption activities

    • Hi Gautham,

      Yes you will not be able to post data if the MM periods are not open (Provided that the data being posted has a relation to Material Movement).

      Check with your MM Consultant and use MMPV Transaction Code. Ask him to select the check box related to Negative Stocks, if any.

      Best Regards
