    At least you could have clicked on technical information to know and share the message number, or even better on the question mark to read the long text of the message yourself.

    SAP has actually 3 messages with equal short text:

    F5674 System error in the FI interface

    F5691 System error in the FI interface

    F5869 System error in the FI interface

    All 3 messages have 1 thing in common: SAP wants you to call their Hotline.

      This message number is F5691. Details of error is as follows:

      System error in the FI interface

      Message No. F5691


      When importing the interface data, the system tried to read the currency data with the following keys:

      • application key "MKPF"
      • application reference ""
      • application organizations "MKPF"
      • item number "0000000001"

      It could not, however, find any currency data for these key fields.

      System Response

      The interface data in the FI/CO document in question is not consistent.


      This is a system error. Contact the SAP Hotline service.

      You must check the consistency between the line items and the currency information in the FI/CO application.

      Please help.

    What is specific to your situation?

    Did you start using user exits/Badis to achieve a certain behavior when posting material documents?

    What is the pattern? Does the error always show up, always show up with a certain movement, always show up at a certain user, with a certain material or material type?

    Had you recently done an upgrade? What is your release?

    Has this worked well before and suddenly started, or is this a total new system, eventually a sandbox?

    Had you talked with a colleague from the Finance team, maybe they have done some changes?

    With the info that the system worked well yesterday and all of the sudden it produces error messages today it should be relatively easy to find the root cause.

    Check the transports that have been imported to your production system since yesterday, one of them must have caused this issue. Ask your Basis team or transport coordinator to assist you. Or check yourself with SE16N in table E070

    Ask the colleagues from MM and FI, talking to each other often resolves issues much quicker.

    • I would recommend to open a call at SAP they should be able to access your system and can check. Of course you have to convince them that this is an error in their standard. But it was anyway said in the OSS notes that you shall open a call. It is just my 20 years of experience that nothing happens without reason all of a sudden.

      And don't forget to share the root cause here once it is solved.

    recently our consultant team resolve few issues related to RE and Finance module which subsequently resolved our issue also.

    • and nobody knows what the real reason and solution to the question was - bummer.

      Another question which does not help a person who might have the same error message in future and finds this post.
