Restrict posting by Account type:

Various account types in SAP are:-

A u2013 Assets

D u2013 Debtors

K - Creditors

M u2013 Material

S - GL

+ - for all accounts

in OB52 you must have at least one entry with + .

you can restrict by account type. give account range to respective account open and clso according to your requirement.

if the 12 posting periods are open, then user can post to the any period. so open only the requied posting periods.

Restrict posting by Authorization( users):

In Posting period(OB52) Blank Authorization grups means Authrization is not maintained for the posting period.

the authorisation grouping code maintaied in user profile

(T Code: SU01- Display user) , give user name and click on disply. click on profiles tab. there you can find.

If you want to use this authorization, proceed as follows:

Specify an authorization group for the allowed posting periods which are to be protected.

Define the authorization which you want to assign to selected employees by listing the authorization groups allowed.

Assign this authorization using the corresponding profile.

Hope this will help you.
