Create Overlapping Financial Period
Hi, my question is that ; - actual values to be stored, change based on the update period (I've monthly, weekly updated projects) - "store period performance" work with financial periods - for same time span monthly and weekly financial periods cannot be created. Error message says "The financial period timescale overlaps with an existing financial period. The financial period was not added." what is the solution ? How I can create these financial periods or any other way to store actuals ? thanks for replies , hatice
Overlapping financial periods is not currently possible. There is an outstanding enhancement request for this functionality to be added so I would contact Oracle and add yourself to: "Is there a way to put in overlapping financial periods? [ID 900334.1]" Only alternative I can think of is to create a separate database for weekly vs monthly financial periods. Maybe someone else has a more creative solution.
I just confirmed this is still not possible in the newest release P6r82. While not pretty another possibility may be to create monthly Financial Periods in the current year and weekly Financial periods in a past previous year (ie: 1980).
