Data migration historical P&L

Dear Community,

Our Go Live is 1st of July and our customer requires the data migration of historical P&L for every posting period year to end (mainly for sales accounts with profitability segments - profit center, distribution channel, customer group etc).

Using Historical balances data migration object is not possible because we don`t have the characteristics needed.

Using GL Open items migration object - it is not possible because the posting date is taken from the Define Settings for Legacy Data Transfer. 

Should I use Upload General Journal Entries App? Do you see any issue if I post documents with a posting date that is before the one set up in the Define Settings for Legacy Data Transfer?

Or should I use the GL Open items migration object and play with the migration key date?

I am afraid that the system will have a different behaviour in production and it will not allow me to use the scenarios described above?

Kind Regards,

Diana

Hi Diana,

I would go for the general journal entries app to avoid playing with the Legacy data Transfer date.

Its worth to test or S4C will complain if you upload before the transfer date in the test system (should be the same situation in the production environment). In our system, we're able to post a journal entry without issues before the transfer date. Also, there should not be a dependency between the transfer date and postings done outside the migration cockpit.

I hope it helps a bit in your investigation.

Eric.

Hello Eric,

Thank you. I appreciate your opinion. I will focus on this direction of uploading using the general journal entries app.
