2711486 - GR/IR Clearing Run: It Is Not Possible to Select Accounting Period for a Recurrent Execution


It is not possible to define an accounting period (Period/Year) for a scheduled recurrent execution of GR/IR Clearing Run.


SAP Business ByDesign 1811.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Inventory Valuation work center.
  2. Go to the Periodic Tasks > GR/IR Clearing view.
  3. Select a GR/IR Run that you want to schedule a recurrent execution and click Schedule Recurrent Execution button.
  4. Select Start Immediately option and click Save and Close.

Notice that a new GR/IR Run is created with description Copy of XYZ (XYZ means the original Run ID). For execution of the new run system has derived the current accounting period, even if the original run has been executed for a past period.


In ByDesign none of the accounting runs support recurrence. With special request GR/IR Clearing Run has been enhanced to support recurrence. Since all accounting runs including GR/IR run are periodic runs, it's always expected to run periodically. Thus based on execution date the period is derived.


The system behaves as designed here.
