Where to maintain text for Variable Period (POPER) for Report S_E38_98000088 - Profit Center Group: Plan/Actual/Variance

Hello Gurus,

When we are selecting the values for field From Period/To Period in below reports using F4 Functionality then system show the Standard text for period 1 to 12 which is Jan to Dec if I have not selected the Company code in Report but as I select the Company code system populate just some standard text as we are using different fiscal year variant (V6 - July to June) hence how can we correct the text for this variable. Variable used is &1PF and field is POPER from table FAGLFLEXT.

I want to heck if we can control the text of this variable which is period.





The below screen shot is when I will not give company code in the selection screen.

This is the config maintained for the Text of the period

This is the screen which pops up after I will give company code in selection criteria. Now from where the system is picking this text. Can we control this text.

Thanks in advance!

The values come from the posting period texts table.  If there is no company code selected then the program picks the first entry from the company code table T001 and uses the posting period variant of that company (looks like K4 in your example).  Once you have entered a selection for the company code it uses the posting period variant of that company.  If for some reason the program can't find the texts in T009C then it just uses the field text "Period" which is what you are seeing.  Your texts are year-dependent but the system should still be able to find them.  I'd suggest you ask one of your abap guys to debug the f4 help.
