The period rule defines the periodicity of the period and its start date.
The period rule must have been created and generated in the system.
The period rule can only be used for periodic processes after it has been generated.
The default value of the point up to which dates are generated is the date of the database server plus 50 years in the future, if this date is within the period rule validity. There is no point generating dates up to HIGH-DATE (year 9999).
After generation, the period start date of each period can be shifted. The following rules apply for shifting periods:
- The period start date of the period to be shifted must not be before the start date of the previous period.
- The period start date of the period to be shifted must not be after the start date of the following period.
- A period must not be outside the period rule validity.
- Each period change generates a new version of the period.
Each new period rule version calls for the dates to be generated again. The effective start of the period rule is also the start date of the generated periods.
If you wish to create a half-year period rule, you need to enter the following parameters:
Number of time units: 6
Time unit: Monthly
If all periods that are generated with a period rule are to start on the 15th of the month, you should select the following values:
No. of time units: 1
Time unit: Monthly
Effective start: 01/15/2007
