|Automate the opening of MM periods
How can you automate the monthly opening of MM periods (transaction
MMPV - program RMMMPERI) with
RMMMPERI accepts a period/year or
If you enter a date the period is derived by it.
1. create a variant and check the attribute 'selection variable' for
the parameter date. Then click the button 'Selection variables' and set
the current date. Every time this variant is used the parameter DATE is
filled with the current date.
2. create a job for RMMMPERI with
the variant created in the preceding step. Set it as periodic.
If you're not using a fiscal year variant simply schedule it as monthly
(to be executed the first day of the month).
If you are using a fiscal year variant you'd have to define a calendar
with only the first day of each period defined as working
day and use it in the periodicity restrictions.
Write a very simple ABAP which run daily to check if the period has
changed and submit RMMMPERI.
