Overview of the Requirement
Define Financial Statement Version is one of the IMG activities that is frequently required in the daily operation and can be declared as a current setting, meaning it can be directly maintained in Production system by business users without a transport request getting created.
You can do these changes in customizing system and move the changes through the transport route to production system.
The current setting indicator can be maintained directly from the IMG. Place the cursor on the IMG activity and select menu option EDIT –> Display IMG activity.
(Alternatively you can use Transaction – SOBJ).
Double click on the customizing object displayed on the screen shown above. This takes you to View Cluster Maintenance screen (Transaction – SOBJ) where you can flag the current setting check box directly. (You will require a developer access key for doing this setting).
Alternatively use Transaction – SOBJ

Testing & Troubleshooting
The changes done have a dependency on the client role.
Make sure the client role is Production
Make sure the transport was released without errors and imported to production system successfully and check current settings indicator is flagged.
In production system use Transaction – FSE2 and see if the system allows you to change the Financial Statement Version.
Though the current settings indicator is flagged in production, the system displays error message TK430: Client &1 has status ‘not modifiable.
To resolve this error message, maintain the message number FE 146 in customizing system and import to production system through a customizing request; which will stop the error for all users or specific user who is responsible for making changes to Financial Statement Version in production system.
To do these settings, click on Change Message Control in performance assistant or use Transaction – OBA5 to go to message maintenance settings screen.
Enter the Application Area as FE and click on new entries to add the message number 146 optionally enter a user name and select the stop message option from the list of values for Online & Batch Input fields and save the changes.
Once the message settings are imported to production system, IMG activity – Define financial statement version is available for direct changes.
You can use Transaction – FSE2 or the current setting transaction – S_ALR_87003215.
