How far can we post backward?

I closed period for material master records today.

Current period is 01/2011 now.

I know I can post to the previous period (12/2010).

I am allowed to post to previous period.

How about 11/2010?

I guess I can't because error occurs...

I think I can do it because OB52 is set 01/2003 through 16/20199

All I can do is run MMPI?

Thank you and regards.

MM period closing is done to post Material document while FI period closing is done to close the FI related documents

Through MMRV you can view which periods are open.if the period is not open then by MMPV transaction code you can open the period. In MM area you have two open periods current and previous.

Once the period closed there is no standard method to open it and we can able to post for the closed period.

Now by OB52 transaction code you can open the FI period closing.

Hi Emma,

you are right,,Any further correction has to be done through FI, The flexibility of opening period for financial issues lies with FI module

Hi Emma,

It depends on the settings done in table V_001_MARV in transaction OMSY. You can allow postings in the previous period, but you can also decide to forbid it. If you do so, no backposting will be allowed anymore.

Kind regards, A,
