2397593 - How to settle/reverse costs from previous year (cross-year settlement)?


In settlement, one can settle a sender with a different period as of Release 4.0. The prerequisite for this is that the posting period is after the settlement period and that the settlement period and posting period are in the SAME fiscal year. This means that a cross-year settlement is NOT possible.

This is not possible in SAP standard, because one cannot enter the posting year on the selection screen in e.g. RKO7CO88 but only the posting period:
