another for the GL balance. Open only the current period of posting or the legacy date period in which you are posting in
OB52 and close all other periods. Similarly use OKP1 for CO period lock. Do not open MM period after the legacy period at
the time if initial stock uploads and get the same be opened by the core team member responsible for opening after
completion of your upload activities. This will prevent erroneous posting to the next period due to the wrong dates given in
the upload file. Create a New Field Status group with mostof organizations elements selected as optional. Make sure that if
profit center is mandatory it needs to be mandatory only and do not change it to optional, as the LSMW screendoesn’t popup

year and depreciationposted during the period or after the start of the fiscal year (Again depends on the configuration on how
you are posting the depreciationto GL) All the G L balances of account type “S” and are non-open item managed need to be
uploaded G L wise-Profitcenter wise Via LSMW as on the cutover date. Make sure that no two profitcenters were uploaded in
the same documentbecause,if you have activated document splitting the number of line items generated at the time of
saving the documentdue to split may exceed 950 line items and the system will throw you out of uploading. Even if it is not
