2636292 - Error Occurred When Releasing Time Record: Financial accounting is closed on DD.MM.YYYY

Symptom

When releasing time entries, you receive the following error message: Financial accounting is closed on DD.MM.YYYY. Change not permitted; close screen. Accounting-relevant data would also be changed. Check whether you can enter time confirmation without accounting attributes.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Time Administration work center
  2. Select Time Sheet view
  3. Search for the repective employeee
  4. Select Open Time Sheet
  5. Select Add row
  6. Select Release for selected Week
  7. Error occurs

Cause

A possible cause is that the business feature for default premium pay is on, because the question below is scoped: Do you want to valuate internal time confirmations with actual employee compensation rates? (Edit Project Scope > Expand Financial and Management Accounting > Expand Management Accounting > Select Project Cost and Revenue Management).

For example, when you try to release a time recording for 01.01.2018, then time valuation starts running from a day before the actual date 01.01.2018. It detects and applies the default premium pay to the 31.12.2017. Due to this, system tries to cancel the already sent source document to financials and tries to send a new source document. But, while sending it finds that the process control for posting date 31.12.2017 is blocked.

Resolution

Please create a process control that allows time confirmation for the date before the date of time recording and try to release the time recording. When doing so, the system will send a new source document to financial side applying this new default premium pay.
