Posting only possible in periods 2014/02 and 2014/01 in company code

Hi there! By Mistake I Have opened posting periods until 02/2014. How to close and open current year posting period.

Posting only possible in periods 2014/02 and 2014/01 in company code

The posting date entered is not within one of the permitted posting periods
(current period/previous period).


This can be due to one of two reasons:


  • The correct current period has not been set in the system.


    For the system, the first of the entered periods is the current period. At
    the beginning of a new period, your systems administrator must change the
    current period in the material master record, using the function "Shift
    periods". This has not yet been done.



  • You have entered a wrong date in the field "Posting date".




Check the posting date and correct it if necessary. If your input is correct,
inform your systems administrator that the "period shifting" (period-end
closing) process has not yet been completed.
