3076697 - Error - You Cannot Enter a Date In a Prior Period for Set of Books ABC

Symptom

You see the error message - "You cannot enter a date in a prior period for set of books ABC" while creating Actual Cost Release run.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Inventory Valuation work centre
  2. Click on Actual Cost Release view.
  3. Click on New.
  4. Select Actual Cost Release Run.
  5. Enter the parameters:
    Company ID
    Set Of Books
    From Period/Year
    Price Valid From
  6. You see the error - You cannot enter a date in a prior period for set of books ABC. 

Cause

The Actual Cost Release Run overwrites the actual cost in the materials’ master data for the current or future accounting periods with the cost calculated for preceding periods in the respective actual cost rollup runs.

In short, you cannot execute Actual Cost Release Run for the past. There is a check point in the Actual Cost Release Run creation to prevent calculation of Actual Cost for the past.

Resolution

This is the standard system behavior.
