Error for Data Element Period?

Hi All,

We are getting the below yellow error in our instance “Period: 2018 July is after latest open future period: 201901 for data element XXX”.

This is for a yearly data set. 2 future periods are open in the data set.

We are confused because there should not be periods attached to data elements, right?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Dear @Hesel_Kate,

The error is on data element NOT dataset. Since data elements have no start and end date, may be check if you are using category options (end date) on that particular data element (wdbCsuncOQ)

Hi Prosper,
There is no cat combo attached to these data elements. Any other ideas?

Hi Hesel,

None of the data elements in this dataset has cat combos?

Also check the opening and closing dates of the Orgunit

This could be related to “DataSet open future periods for data entry” setting, check the document for more details

@viet thanks for this I have checked and had put in value to allow data entry for at two years in advance since these are targets but it still doesn’t allow for some of the data elements.

Hi @cdziwa, did you get a fix for this?

I experienced this issue today while importing data. Just make sure that the period format matches and that the open period is properly configured to suit.
