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:


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


Revaluation Area - Asset Accounting (FI-AA) - SAP Library

I appreciate any comment.

Thanks

    Please check in tr. OADC field "Typ". Maybe this will be helpful.

    Hi Ana,

    The inflation program is a country-specific development and not part of FI-AA core functionality (So not really my area of expertise). But I will try to help:

    I checked in the coding and the message 8Z798 is raised if you try J1A1 with an area that is not maintained as a revaluation area in inflation customizing (technically it means that there is no entry for your area in table J_1AAT089).

    You can do all the inflation setup in SPRO "Asset Accounting -> Special Valuation -> Revaluation of Fixed Assets -> Revaluation for the Balance Sheet -> Inflation Accounting". There you find also documentation for the different customizing steps.

    To avoid error 8Z798 I assume that you have to add a new entry for your area 40 in "Inflation Accounting -> Revaluation Areas -> Maintain Revaluation Areas" (there are 2 customizing steps with the same name. For you the 2nd one is relevant).

    Best regards, Michael
