foreign currency valuation

Dear All,

I am working on ECC6 version. I want to do valuation on GL balances. When ever i am trying to do F.05 it throwing an error as below

Error message:

You can only valuate balances using a ledger group</b>Message no. FR887


You want to valuate balances in the general ledger. However, the system cannot assign a ledger group to the valuation area. This connection is necessary for the program to read the balances from the correct ledger(s).

System Response

Error message.


Assign a ledger group to the valuation area.

Can Any one please guide where to this assignment

Points Awaiting!!!!

Please check whether u have defined the Ledger for General Ledger Accounting in IMG

FA(New)>FAGlobal SeetingsNew>Ledgers>Ledger>

1. Define Ledger for General Ledger Accounting

2. Define Ledger Group.

In this check whether Leading ledger is Checked as Representative Ledger.

Check in the IMG for

FA(New)>FAGlobal SeetingsNew>General Ledger AccountingNew>Periodic Processing>Check Assignment of Accounting Principle to Ledger Group.

Hope this helps you
