Generating Fiscal Periods from the Administration Console

To generate fiscal periods from the Administration Console:

  1. Open the Administration Console. (See Opening the Administration Console.)

  2. In the left panel of the Administration Console, expand the Administration Task section, and then select Generate fiscal periods.

  3. In the Generate fiscal periods panel on the right, leave the Generate option selected.

  4. In the Start Year and End year boxes, type the starting and ending years for the fiscal periods you want to generate.

    The Administration Console generates the fiscal periods, and then lists all existing fiscal periods (for all period types) in the Administration Console.

    Note: If a gap exists between the latest existing fiscal period year and the starting year you specify, the Administration Console generates fiscal periods for all of the intervening years.

  5. To persist the generated fiscal periods, click Commit.

  6. To implement your changes, stop, and then restart, the PPM Servers.

    Note: For information about how to stop and start PPM Servers, see Starting and Stopping the PPM Server on a Single-Server System.
