EC-CS Consolidation of Investments - Unappropriate Retained Earnings Account

Hi Friends,

Currently I am working on EC-CS Consolidation module in our new project where I have completed the baseline configuration for Consolidation of Investments too.

Our customer has around 10 Non-SAP Companies which are requirement to be part of the C/I to see own investment and Non Controlled Investment (NCI/external).

I have set up the consolidation unit and the Additional financial data and also completed the account determinations for C/I through CXI9, CXH2.

However, when I am testing the C/I for this cons unit through CX57, I am getting below error message -

The item 'Unappr.retained earnings carryforward item (debit)' has not been maintained

Message no. GK660


The financial statement item

Unappr.retained earnings carryforward item (debit)

in the consolidation chart of accounts Z1 has not been maintained in the consolidation version 100.

Can somebody please help me on where to maintain the unappropriate RE account for C/I.

    Dear Ram,

    As you metioned, you completed customizing in CXI9 for FS Items for Consolidation Investments (CoI).

    Customizing might be however incomplete in global settings in transaction CXI0 or per CoI method in CXI4.

    In transaction CX6C3 you can run the check of customizing settings for consolidation of investments. All errors mention here must be corrected before running CoI otherwise you will get incorrect results. I would expect that GK660 also appears here.

    Please have a look on consulting note 1305618 about typical problems in Retained Earnings determination

    For the CoI customizing documentation you can use the documentation in note 117253 or I would recommend the Help Portal for FIN-SEM-BCS which is very similar and available online under the following link:

    Best regards,
