Hello Luis,

Please do the settings as defined below:


> Production ---> SOP ---> Set parameters for infor structure and key figures -

>Select Table " S076 ---> Double click -

> in the next screen Click on Planning Periods -

>Press F4 -

> follow the below information.

N.B : Before proceeding further read the below note carefully. This self explanatory


Maintain planning periods in Customizing

Indicates which period indicators can be used to plan this information structure.

If the planning method is consistent planning, you can plan this information structure using more than one period indicator. For these period indicators, you generate a technical period that is saved in the form of a fiscal year variant. The following example explains how to plan in weeks and months.


1. Set the information structure parameters for this function in Set parameters of info structures and key figures as follows:

a) Press F4 on the Planning periods field. (The Storage periodicity field is not ready for input.)

b) In the planning periods box on the next screen, enter 'W' and 'M' in the PI column.

c) Enter a name for your technical fiscal year variant. This name should consist of two letters.

d) Enter a generation horizon. This horizon should encompass the planning horizon - both past and future periods - that you wish to plan with this information structure.

e) Save these settings.

A technical fiscal year variant is automatically generated. You return to the information structure parameters screen. The name of your technical fiscal year variant (see step 1c) appears as the fiscal year variant. A 'G' appears in the Planning periods field. This 'G' stands for generated.

If you intend to plan using just one period indicator, do only steps (1a), (1b), and (1e). The period indicator that you enter in (1b) is then saved as the storage periodicity.

2. Exactly which weeks and which months are displayed in the planning table depends on the time buckets grid. A time buckets grid specifies the number and sequence of the time buckets that you wish to plan. You define and assign a time buckets grid in the planning type.

Create a time buckets grid in your planning type as follows:

a) Create the following time buckets grid for future periods:

Selection Sequence Number Remaining

Weeks 1 4

Months 2 11 x

b) Create the following time buckets grid for historical periods:

Selection Sequence Number Remaining

Months 2 11 x

Weeks 1 4

The planning table looks like this:

11 months|4 weeks || 4 weeks|11 months



Historical periods Future periods

Further notes

You can only create a time buckets grid if your technical fiscal year variant contains more than one period indicator.

You cannot use "T" (days) in a time buckets grid.


Hope this helps..
