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 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.

      Hi Ganesh,

      As this is a cross client setting, it will create a W/B request. This change requires a developer access key.

      If W/B TR was not created, please make sure the client settings allow you to change cross client settings in SCC4 Txn. Code. Hope you are changing this in a test system where the client settings do not allow to change cross client objects.

      Please confirm.

      Regards

      KIM Khan
