How the system know the actual period in the Production startup of ML?

Hi experts:

I have a question:

We want to make a prototipe of Material Ledger/Actual Costing.

At first we want to make a copy of all the information of one Client for example until 31.11.2009 to another Client.

I have readed that when you make the Production Startup process of ML, the system transfers inventory quantities, inventory values and prices from material master records to the material ledger data for the current period, the previous period, and the last period of the previous year.

The question is How the system can determinate the actual period??.. Is this based on the MM logistic periods??.

At last if we do the copy of all the existing movements to our client until 31.11.2009 but the MM logistic period was 03/2010, What is the Actual Period for Material Ledger at the moment that I realize the Production startup?.

Thanks and regards!!
