Import the Period Definitions File

To import the modified period definitions into PPM:

  1. Save the modified period definitions file with a .csv extension in the directory <PPM_Home>/bin/fiscal/input.

  2. Run the following script:

    sh ./kGenFiscalPeriods.sh -import <file name>.csv

    where <file name> is the name of the modified period definitions file in the folder specified in step 1.

    For example, if you want to import the data from the file named period_definitions.csv, run the following script:

    sh ./kGenFiscalPeriods.sh -import period_definitions.csv

    The script saves the generated periods in a preview file fiscal_periods_<time stamp>.csv in the <PPM_Home>/bin/fiscal/output directory for you to verify before you commit the periods to the database.

  3. Verify that the periods listed in the preview file are appropriate.
  4. When you are satisfied with the data in the preview file, run the script with the -import argument again but add the commit option to add the periods to the database.
