How to clear order balances- KOB1


How do we clear balances for orders? We tried zero-ing out balances via posting but only the local value was cleared, and the USD still has value:

Is there a SAP standard way/other ways to clear out balances for orders?

    Dear Laarni,

    Please, check in OKKP (Controlling Area components and indicators) if "Update all Currencies" is set:

    If this indicator is set, it means that the system will update the values in the transaction currency and in the object currency as per your screen.

    The settlement will be always done in the object currency and the controlling area currency will remain the exchange rate difference.

    If you would like to have the CO components always work with controlling area currency this flag should be unmarked.

    I hope it helps you.

    Best regards,

    Gabriel Coleti

      As a last resort, we:

      1 -write a JE to clear the GL,

      2 - go to OKO7 and change the settlement profile from "To be setttled in ful" to Not for settlement

      3 - set the deletion flag (or CLSD) on the orders that have balances

      4 - reset the settlement profle to "To be settled in full"

      and 5 - move forward.

    The best way is to settle the Order (KO88)

    If you have ALL CURRENCIES indicator active in Co Area (OKKP), it will ensure that balance is zero in all currencies
