MR11 error - Error while determining currency type - C+, 171!!!

Hi All

We try to do MR11, with some of the companies we do not have a problem but a few of them give us the following error message.

Message no. C+171

Error while determining the currency types for 20000134668 00001


Check the configuration.

All the companies are set up with parallel currencies.

Currency Type: 10 Company code currencies

30 Group currencies

Please tell me what I need to do get this fixed.

With this answer I could solve this error:

when a purchase order is referenced to a

Material/Plant and this Plant is not yet productive in ML! You can

check this in transaction CKM9.

Also this can be seen in transaction OMX1

(IMG: Controlling -> General Controlling ->

Multiple valuation approaches/Transfer prices -> Basic settings

-> Check Material ledger settings -> Activate Valuation Areas for

Material ledger) for valuation area 1111 and company code 1111 the

material ledger is active.

However, in transaction CKMLOH (This transaction is used to view

PO history of particular use where material ledger active as you can

switch between the currencies.):

If you know the PO click on the overview button (F2) and then Click

on the display button, you will see the error C+020. If this is so,thenplease either deactivate ML again or set it productive, but the current

state of the config will block these kind of postings since they would

result in corrupt data.

For more information about ML active please review the note 596558.

Also take a look to the notes 108374 and 425487 for your information.

Kindly note that ALL historical data in PRODUCTION system will be lost

with deactivation and activation of Material Ledger again.

It cannot be recovered after activating Material Ledger again!

Hope this would be enough!
