Problem with TB profile
I created a TB profile with the value Number : 8 and Display Periodicity : M and assigned it to TB Profile ID (Future) in the data view tab of /sapapo/sdp8b transaction(Edit planning book). Now I mark the Visible Frm check box and gave the date as 1.10.2006 but I press enter the date automatically changes to 01.09.2006. Please let me know the reason for this.
Assign TB Profile ID(Future) - 8 months & Past - 12 months in your Data View.
Go to visible indicator and select the month 12month backwards, it should display automatically based on your TB Profile (Past) i.e. 01/09/2006 (DD/MM/YYYY).
If you want to restrict your users not to modify the current month then fill in the offset field as 1. It automatically forward your periods by one month i.e. 01/10/2006 to 01/05/2008 instead of 01/09/2006 to 01/04/2008.
Assumptions:Planning Area is Initialized wider than Data View horizon and forecast profile is not wider than Data view horizon. Using Julian calendar months.
