KGI2 / KGI4 Post Overhead calculation to different period

Post by wooxun » Tue Mar 11, 2014 11:37 am

Hi CO experts,

We have a business scenario to on apply overhead through costing sheet and post the calculation result to the next accounting period.

The transaction code for overhead calculation is KGI2 or KGI4. When execute tcode KGI2 or KGI4, we will populate parameters for period 1 and fiscal year 2014 for eg. That means overhead calculation will be based on expenses from period 1 of 2014. What we want have the system to do is to post the calculation result to period 2. Through the menu path Extra > Posting date from both programs, we can put in a posting date, for example, we want to put in 2014/02/28 as the posting date, the system will show message "KA454 Enter a posting date in period 001", and it won't proceed until we put in any date within period 1.

Our questions are:
1) Can we change message KA454 to a warning message so that we can proceed with overhead calculation and post in different period?
2) What is the work around if not?

Thanks in advance.
