You may receive the following error when rescheduling installments for a pledge. This pledge may have previous payment made in a closed period, but you are trying to reschedule future payments in open periods.

After opening the fiscal period, you should be able to rescheduled your pledge. After rescheduling the pledge, you can follow the steps above to edit the fiscal year and mark the boxes to close that year.
