We are using version 12.1.3 in Oracle and we are trying to implement the Change Period functionality for the batches and jouranls. We have the Data Access Set created for both read and write access for the full ledger; however, we are not able to change the period for batches and journals. The Batches/Journals that are unposted has the Change Period button greyed out. We also have some journals that have errored and the option to Change Period is available; however, whenever we click on it, it will not allow us to update the period to the current period. Are we missing additional setups that are required for us to use that functionality?
If you pull up the JE source on the Journal Sources screen, check the value assigned to the "Freeze Journals" field. If that is set to Yes, you won't be able to manually update the journals, including changing the period.
