Posting Period is the vital control in MM Posting Transactions GR,GI,IV ).In MM side you have better control & you open only current period and current minus one period. In T.code: MMRV and see which period is open for ur Co. Code and back posting is allowed or not. In MMPV close the period last period and automatically system open the new one. Before closing period in MM side you must ensure that all posting GR,GI,IV related to that month is posted.

In FI side in t.code: OB52 and can open more then one period for the Account Types A, K, D,M, S and specially Account Type u201C+u201D which stands for valid for all accounts type and save.
