FIN_GL_CI_2: Posting Period Check for CO-FI Postings (New)


From SAP ECC 6.0, Enhancement Package 4, Business Function New General Ledger Accounting 2, you can still post CO transactions in the preceding period even when this period has been closed for FI postings. For this, you can use the additional period interval 3 in the Customizing settings for the posting periods; this period interval is only relevant for postings from Controlling (CO) to Financial Accounting (FI) (New). It is valid for postings created with the real-time integration as well as for postings created using the CO-FI reconciliation ledger during closing operations.

When you create an entry for period interval 3, only postings that were transferred from CO to FI are checked against this interval. All other posting transactions are controlled with period intervals 1 and 2.

If you do not create an entry for period interval 3, the settings for period intervals 1 and 2 are also valid for postings from CO to FI.


You can only define the period interval for account type +.
