Area 40 not a revaluation area or a parallel currency area

Hello experts,

We're implementing a Chilean company code and for F-AA, and I have the deprec. areas below:

01Book or tax depreciation area
10Area USD
20Area EUR
30Book deprec. Group
40Book Group - Inflation (Reval. area)
42Inflation USD
43Inflation EUR

I'm trying to run J1AI - Asset inflation for Chile company code and I'm getting this error :

Area 40 not a revaluation area or a parallel currency area

Message no. 8Z798

I created a specific Depr. area to post the inflation amounts: "40"

So, area 40 should receive only the amounts about the inflation program (j1ai)

I made all the config about Inflation Accounting and created 2 parallel currency Areas in OABT because SAP requires:

These parallel currency areas are required only for technical reasons, because, logically, inflation is specific to a currency only (in this case, your local currency). Therefore, the Asset Revaluation (Inflation) program always posts zero amounts to parallel currencies.

I appreciate any comment.
