Are the Periods in FinancialAccounting&Controllong driven by system date?

Former Member

Hi Experts,

Our Finance Department wants the Period roll-over on Wednesday, 24.12.2008 (Close period December 2008 and open period January 2009 period on the same day) in Financial Accounting&Controllong modules.

Are there any consequences in doing that?

Are the Periods in SAP (FinancialAccounting-OB52 & Controllong-OKP1) driven by system date?

Normally, we will be performing Period roll-over on 1st day of every month.

Please help...

Thank You,

Nagarjuna Palnati

HI experts

First confirm your OB52 configuration is on day basis or month basis .In case it is on day basis you can close the specific period of 24.12 & allow the entry from 1.1 onwards . if it is configured on Month basis then you can not stop for a particular date without closing the month .

Since the date is controlled by the systems , you can only restricts the period by blocking the OB52 & OKP1 by mannually closing .

Hi Nagarjuna,

SAP derives the date from system date.

If you are closing the period for December2008 on 24/12/2008, you will not be able to make any postings for the period 25/12/2008 to 31/12/2008.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Chandra Kumari,

During the period 25/12/2008 to 31/12/2008 the postings should go to January 2009 period.

Is that possible? since, we will be rolling FI & Co periods to January 2009 on 24/12/2008.

Please reply...

Thank You.
