Help with OB52

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hello All,

Did anyone work on BDC for OB52 to Automate FI period Open/Close during month end? Or is there any other way to automate FI period open/close during month end process?

I looked into OB52 transaction it gives the view of table T001B and I am not sure if we can do a BDC for a table view. Can anyone help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I think that you should use "table control in BDC".

But as far as you should modify only a table, it's possible to use directly modify sql.

Pavan,

Yes, I have automated the Open & Close of periods for some very specific needs (open 2 periods for the first two business dyas of the month for batch processing) using BDC. The table T001B has a special setting and the screen fields will only be open for input either in a Productive Client or in a client that is open for client specific customizing.

Cheers,

Ramki Maley.

Hello Ramky,

Can you provide me with the sample BDC code if possible. It would be of great help if you can provide me with this.

Thanks

Unfortunately I cannot share code due to contractual obligations. This is how it is done.

1) Any new entry in table T001B is created manually by the BP team using OB52.

2) All entries for the the required posting period variant are read into an internal table.

3) Open period for each line can then be changed using BDC (Hint: use the Position button at the bottom of the OB52 screen).

Cheers,

Ramki Maley.
