2984602 - Error "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." occurred when releasing time entries

Symptom

Error "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." occurs when releasing time entries in MM1, which is the next month of MM.

Environment

 SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Time Administration work center
  2. Select Employees view
  3. Search for the employee and select Edit
  4. Navigate to Employee Times tab
  5. Select time entry on DD1.MM1.YYYY (eg: 01.09.2020) and select Actions > Activate
  6. Select Save

Then error occurs.

Cause

You have a time entry on the DD.MM.YYYY (eg: 31.08.2020) that is in pending cancellation. While saving the system is also picking this one up and trying to process it.

As long as this entry is not processed you will keep getting the financial period error.

Resolution

To process this time entry you need to open up the process control for the company of the employee. Afterwards you can release this cancellation and save it.
