Simple Finance Controlling Area Currency in ledger

Hi All,

SFIN2 is installed in our system. While doing Configuration of Ledger & Additional currency, we found that

When we add 2nd or 3rd currency type as Controlling area currency -> we get error as Local currency cant be defined completely for company code

And when we don't have any currency type = Controlling area currency -> we can post the document to company code.

One of the reason is in T code OB22 - currency code is not being updated for currency type =20. Even though it is updated in Controlling area configuration.

When you check T code OB22 - It gives message as use t code FINSC_LEDGER - to maintain currency setting & when you still continue you cant edit but can check additional currency for company code.

I believe Currency code details are supposed to be updated form config of t code FINSC_LEDGER or OKKP, but it is not happening.

Am I missing any other config?

We did below configuration

1) Controlling area created & currency assigned = 20  & Currency code = EUR. this currency is populated in Ledger configuration as group & controlling currency

2) In Ledger setting, we have three currency

     i. Local Currency =10 company code currency (Derivied from Comapny code)

     ii. Global Currency for GL & Controlling = 20 controlling area currency ( Derived from Controlling area)

     iii.1st Additional currency =30 or 60 (This has to be defined in this t code)

Please suggest, If we miss anything to configure?

P.S:-  We Ran program "FINS_CUST_CONS_CHK" to check currency & ledger consistence. And we got Green message "Check Passed"

currency type 20 cannot be used in FI.

Currency type 20 is supported in FINSC_LEDGER, therefore only for compatibility reasons; if currency type 20 was already used in CO, then after migration of the currency configuration, "KSL" field of ACDOCA will be used for CO only, and FI will work with the fields HSL, OSL and VSL.

For new installations we strongly recommend to configure currency type 30 in CO and in FI (for the KSL field in ACDOCA).

By the way, OB22 will automatically updated from the FINSC_LEDGER maintance.

Best Regards,
