Monthly & Yearly Closing

Victor J
Currently Being Moderated

Hi Sappers!


1. I would like to know what steps & transaction codes are involved in period end (monthly & yearly) closing in FI.

2. How do we carry forward the balances to the next period? Will opening & closing periods in OB52 achieve this?

3. In our existing system once we close a particular module like Sales Order Module, it automatically transfers the amount in the General Ledger. How do we achieve his in SAP.

4. Are there any special closing activities involved in quarterly closing?


Appreciate your time!
