Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    There is no sequence of importance in the close transaction steps ... all that matters is that they all get performed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there is indeed a sequence of importance in the close transaction steps. The order in which the steps are performed can greatly impact the outcome of the transaction. For example, certain steps like verifying the accuracy of the transaction details, obtaining necessary signatures, and recording the transaction in the appropriate systems need to be done in a specific order to ensure the transaction is properly closed. Failing to follow the correct sequence can lead to errors, legal issues, or financial loss.

    The FIRST closing step that needs to be performed is?

    • A.

      FK10N

    • B.

      KKAK

    • C.

      MMPV

    • D.

      VKM1

    Correct Answer
    C. MMPV
    Explanation
    The correct answer is MMPV. MMPV is the transaction code used in SAP for closing the period in Material Ledger. It is used to perform activities such as closing the current period, updating exchange rates, and carrying out valuations for materials. This step needs to be performed first before any other closing steps can be executed in SAP.

  • 3. 

    Asset depreciation should be run before the GR/IR clearing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Asset depreciation should be run after the GR/IR clearing. GR/IR clearing is the process of reconciling the Goods Receipt/Invoice Receipt account in the general ledger with the corresponding accounts in the subledger. Once this process is completed, the asset depreciation can be accurately calculated based on the reconciled values. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The month-end close process that involves production orders entails the following:

    • A.

      Run asset depreciation, then billing due list, and then calculate overhead.

    • B.

      Review blocked billing docs, then process vendor payments, and then execute order settlement.

    • C.

      Calculate overhead, calculate WIP, calculate variances, and then execute order settlement.

    • D.

      Review PO listing for goods received, not invoiced, calculate variances, and then post parked docs.

    Correct Answer
    C. Calculate overhead, calculate WIP, calculate variances, and then execute order settlement.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Calculate overhead, calculate WIP, calculate variances, and then execute order settlement." This is because the month-end close process involving production orders requires calculating overhead costs, calculating work in progress (WIP), calculating any variances, and finally executing the order settlement. This sequence ensures that all costs and financial transactions related to production orders are accurately accounted for and settled.

    • A.

      Can only be executed one time, the first day of the new period.

    • B.

      Can be set by module individually, all FI modules collectively and can be opened or closed as often as deemed necessary.

    • C.

      Can only be controlled by sub-module, not collectively.

    • D.

      Is part of MMPV.

    Correct Answer
    B. Can be set by module individually, all FI modules collectively and can be opened or closed as often as deemed necessary.
    Explanation
    The FI Period Close t-code and related settings can be customized to be set by module individually or collectively for all FI modules. This means that each module within the FI system can have its own specific period close settings, or all modules can have the same settings. Additionally, the period can be opened or closed as often as needed, based on the requirements of the organization. This flexibility allows for efficient financial period management. The statement also mentions that the period close is part of MMPV, which is a transaction code used for period close activities in SAP systems.

      VF04

    • D.

      ME2L

    Correct Answer
    D. ME2L
    Explanation
    ME2L is the correct answer because it is a t-code that displays Purchase Order (PO) goods that have been delivered but not yet invoiced. This transaction code provides a list of all open POs with their respective delivery status, allowing users to track the goods that have been delivered but have not yet been invoiced. This information is essential for monitoring the status of deliveries and ensuring accurate financial records.

    A balance sheet and income statement can be run at any time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A balance sheet and income statement can be run at any time because they provide a snapshot of a company's financial position and performance. These financial statements can be prepared at the end of a specific period, such as a month, quarter, or year, or they can be generated at any other point in time to assess the current financial status of the company. This flexibility allows businesses to monitor their financial health and make informed decisions based on the information provided by these statements.

    Which step in invoice creation enters the invoice into the SAP system after it has been parked?

    • A.

      Completing an invoice

    • B.

      Simulating an invoice

    • C.

      Posting an invoice

    • D.

      Answers A and C

    Correct Answer
    C. Posting an invoice
    Explanation
    Posting an invoice is the step in invoice creation that enters the invoice into the SAP system after it has been parked. Once the invoice has been parked, it is not yet considered as officially entered into the system. Posting the invoice finalizes the process and ensures that the invoice is recorded and accounted for in the SAP system. Therefore, the correct answer is "Posting an invoice".

    • B.

      Rate have to be entered before the "old" period is closed.

    • C.

      Rates are only entered once a month on the 15th.

    • D.

      Only one rate type can exist for each currency combination.

    Correct Answer
    A. The rate with a validity date closest to the posting date without being in the future is the rate used.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the rate with a validity date closest to the posting date without being in the future is the rate used. This means that when translating foreign currency, the rate that is closest to the date of the transaction is used. It should not be a rate that is in the future. This ensures that the translation is based on the most current exchange rate available at the time of the transaction.

    All journal entries in GL must be posted before running a P&L report in SAP.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because the journal entries in the general ledger (GL) do not need to be posted before running a Profit and Loss (P&L) report in SAP. In SAP, P&L reports can be generated based on both posted and unposted journal entries in the GL. Therefore, it is not necessary to post all journal entries before running a P&L report in SAP.
