Posting period is error

Dear Experts,

I have situation that systems resposes the error as below message. FYI I have done MMPV and my input is correct, I have checked in finance open and close period is correct as well. I need your assistance to guide me as per diagnosis below.

Posting only possible in periods 2009/02 and 2009/01 in company code 0546

Message no. M7053


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

Best regards,
