How to replace a last period with a switchover?

Hi team,

 

I got a problem with a switchover when I can not replace the last period on the time scale with an actual version. 

I have two versions: Plan and Actual for one-year timescale Jul'16-Jun'17. I have been replacing the plan version with a switchover each month. When my last month has been closed I had no option to get actual data on the Plan version becuase the last available option for switchover is Jun'17. How could I manage it?

 

Thank you in advance,

I think the only option is to extend your timescale. Can this be an option for you?

No, unfortunately it's not an option, because of the model size would be more then my available WS. I've found a kind of solution for that, but I don't like it too much. 

The idea is to replace a one version with onother one by formula instead of switchover. But sometimes it could be a comlex exercise becuase of the model structure
