Hi there,

While creating delivery document an error is coming:

"Posting only possible in periods 2008/11 and 2008/10 in company code ocgs."

while creating stock also same error was showing. however i have created stock in period 26.02.2009.

while creating delivery doc again the error is coming. Can it be solved or should i cancel the order?

i am unable to open the closed period. My company's fiscal yr variant is V3. And current period is 11 2008. in which i

have created stock.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Friend,

If you are using period starting from April 2008, then correct Posting Period for Novembber 2008 is 09/2008.

But if seems in your case some has by mistake opened 11/2008. That means 09/2008 is closed & you cannot to material movement entries in a closed period.

You can open closed MM periods, but be really careful next because even SAP does recommend opening closed MM periods.

Anywasy follow this:

T-Code: MMPI - from Tool Bar select - System - User Profile - Own Data - In parameter Tab Enter "MMPI_READ_NOTE" in parameter Field

Then, Remove assignment of Plants from Company Code (In SPRO).

Now use T-Code OMSY & Set the required Period.

Re-assign Plants to Company Code & Check whether correct preriod is open thru T-Code - MMRV

Now use T-code - OMWD to Assign Valuation grouping code to Valuation area because the earlier data gets deleted when assignment of Plants was removed.

Use the transaction code OMS2 then select FERT

Then click on the quantity and value update.

Select your plant or valuation area and put Tick Marks in Value update and Quantity update

Hope this solves your problem...

Give points if useful...

Dear Mr. Mehta,

I have followed your steps, System is not allowing me to open the period, may be coz i have created material already. Its saying "period cannot be initialized."

What can be done?

If it is in your training/personnel system, change the fiscal year variant to K4 in your company code. If the fiscal year variant is V3, the posting period should be 08/2008. Make it to K4, it should work.

If it is areal time system, contact your FI expert.

get your MM/FI consultant to open periods for posting using MMPV or similar finance related tcode.

also, please research existing threads on this subject. there are a lot out there.
