AC496 error message

Hi guru,

I have this problem:


  • LEADING LEDGER (2 currency )

NO LEADING LEDGER (only one currency)


This is my depr area:

1 _ book dep for 1L ledger

2 _ fiscal dep this are not post – but this area is necessary if I want to adopt a different key dep for one asset

20 _ book dep for 0L Ledger

21 _ dep area for currency group (necessary because 0L Ledger has two currency defined in customizing)

Specify Transfer of APC Values

And Specify Transfer of Depreciation Terms


Define Depreciation Areas for Foreign Currencies

For me must be all EUR currency

Specify the Use of Parallel Currencies

In my ledger 1L I have only one currency

  1. Dep.Area 1 and 2 have linked to 1L ledger.

When I check the consistency of the customizing the system show me this message AC496

Company code 1000 manages parallel currencies in Asset Accounting. For each area that posts automatically online to FI, you have to define one dependent depreciation area that adopts both identical values and depreciation terms from depreciation area 01, and which is assigned to currency type 30 and currency EUR. There is no depreciation area of this type defined for depreciation area 01.

So: If I create a new dep area whit the specific of the message

Area 03

When save I have this error message

"Inconsistency exists between company code 1000 and chart of deprec. YBIT

Message No. ACC_AA092


According to Customizing, the representative ledger of ledger group 1L in company code 1000 does not manage parallel currencies.

However, chart of depreciation YBIT contains depreciation areas (to which ledger group 1L is assigned) that manage parallel currencies.

System Response

It is not possible to change the data.


You have the following options:

  • Change the definition of the depreciation areas.
  • Or specify for the company code that the ledger manages parallel currencies."

I don’t want to add this currency to no leading ledger.

how can resolve this situation?

best regards



Hi Claudia,

If you are in a recent release, check this note  2200217 - S2I: Consistency report: FI-AA customizing issues incorrect message AC496

The system issues the message erroneously for non-leading ledger.



P.S. Note 1953617 - S2I: error message AC 496 when maintaining parallel currency

is better to be implemented as well if you are with 6.17
