2042164 - MMPV Period shifted by error to future period for Material Ledger active plant


  •  Material Ledger Active.
  •  Controlling (CO).

In the following context we will use

  • "Period X" for the “real” period, which has become the previous period by wrongly shifting of MMPV
  • "Period X+1" for the period, to which the system has been shifted via MMPV (by mistake), which has become the current period
  • "Period X-1" for the previous period before wrongly shifting of MMPV

You have executed transaction MMPV for a future period (X+1) by mistake. Material Ledger is active in the affected plant/company code.

If you have activated the Material Ledger, it is not possible and not allowed to initialize the company code (transaction MMPI or report RMMMINIT) in order to shift the period back. You will receive the error message MM017 ('The material ledger is active; you cannot initialize valuation area &').
