Even though its correctly mainatined , its giving posting error

"Posting only possible in periods 2010/06 and 2010/05 in company code "

What will be the problem for this ??

Automatic Program for MMPV

The client I am working with has an outdated training client. The current posting period right now is November 2004. I have two questions:

1. Does anyone know of a shortcut to get the current posting period updated versus opening each month from Nov. '09 until today.

2. Is there an automatic program that can be set up to change to current period without having to go in manually every month to initiate MMPV.

In IMG, you can go to Logistics - General => Material Master => Basic Settings => Maintain Company Codes for Materials Management. You can then enter the periods that you need to have open.

As far as running something monthly, if you are working only in one general region of the world, you can run program RMMMPERI from SE38 at 00:01:00 on day 1 of each period. You'll need to create a selection variant with a variable to tell it which period to use.

We run into problems with MMPV/RMMMPERI, and have to actually manually schedule it each month. I run it three times - one to open the periods for our Asian plants (at 09:00:00 my time, on the last day of my month), one to open periods for our European plants (at 16:00:00 my time, on the last day of my month), and one to open periods for our US plants (at 00:01:00 my time, on the first day of my month). I've not been able to schedule recurring jobs for the Asian and European plants, because I can't figure out a way to set up a recurrence for the last day of the month. I can do it on day 1, or day 28, or something specific like that, but since the last day of the month can fall on day 28, 30, or 31, I'm not able to do that.
