  • Bookings in closed months can no longer be edited. This is the purpose of the month-end closing. However, closed months — analogous to closed fiscal periods — can be reopened. Then bookings of this period can be edited again or new bookings can be added.
  • If All years is selected as the period, individual months cannot be closed.
