We are on ERP Lx 8.3.2. Late last year we brought our Australian operation into ERP Lx. The month-ends since have all fallen at weekends so we have had lots of time to run all our operations' month-ends in one go without keeping anyone off the system.

March month-end will fall on a Tuesday and I want Australia to be able to run their own month-end procedures on their 31st March while in the UK and USA it's still 30th March and we are working on the system. As soon as they finish that they can start to use the system for the April period. I will then run month-ends for all companies except Australia in the early hours of UK 1st April.

The only part of the month-end procedures that we run that isn't Company or Facility-specific - and so when it's run it's run for everyone - is Inventory Month-End Close, INV900.

At the moment I'm leaning towards having Australia run this on their monthend, before UK's. This will initialise the new month starting figures before UK has closed, so could cause a bit of hassle but we can probably work around that.

I'm guessing that there must be many other companies out there with a similar scenario, so this is a general request for advise on how they do it, pointers on possible problems etc. Any information gratefully received.
