I have created a detailed documentation (step by step) with screen shoots about how to schedule close periods for material master record (MMPV). This is kind of activity that has to be done end of every month (either manually or automatically). I tink it is better to do automatically by scheduled job so it will not be forgotten.
I hope it will be useful for many of you since i spent pretty a lot of time to find out how to do it and now this in your hand.
