9KE0 - Balance not zero. Document cannot be posted

Hello

One of my colleagues is trying to post a CO only document to move balances across profit centres in special period 16. The company is GBP so she enters the GBP amount and the system automatically posts the USD amount in Group currency. Unfortunately the translated USD amounts are out of balance by 0.01 so the document won't post and we can't alter the USD amounts. Error message - Balance not zero. Document cannot be posted.

Does anyone have any ideas how to get the document to post?

Thanks

Tizzy

    Hi Tizzy,

    If its only a matter of one document, then you can use 1KEL instead of 9KE0. You can specify the addtional currency amounts there.

    Hello Tizzy,

    I suppose you receive error message F5598.

    EC-PCA is from technical point of view nothing else than a special ledger in FI (FI-SL). Therefore it is just normal that FI messages can appear in connection with EC-PCA and that you need to maintain some PCA relevant entries in FI transactions.

    Of course from logical point of view error F5598 is justified as PCA needs to know which account should be used in order to post rounding differences that might occur in connection with 9KE0.

    Procedure RDF is used to post internal currency rounding differences.

    In your case this procedure is mentioned because only one of the three possible currencies (transaction, company code or profit center currency) is contained in the layouts for document entry, and differences differences have occur in the other currencies due to the automatic currency translation, although the balance is zero in the displayed currency.

    The only way to make this posting in PCA is either to setup the accounts for actvity RDF (transaction OBA1) or to maintain the document type as 2 - no balance check (transaction GCBX).

    Example:

    Company code currency: AUD

    Profit Center local currency: EUR

    current exchangerate: AUD -> EUR = 0,591058244

    10 AUD = 5,91 EUR

    5 AUD = 2,96 EUR

    When you now post the following transaction the following values are posted or translated

    Profit Center Company Code Currency Profit Center Local Currency

    AAAAAAAA 10,00 AUD 5,91 EUR

    BBBBBBBBB 5,00- AUD 2,96- EUR

    CCCCCCCCC 5,00- AUD 2,96- EUR

    Balance 0,00 AUD 0,01- EUR

    So the system needs either the information where to post the rounding difference or to ignore the rounding difference.

    Cheers,

    Daniela

    Hi,

    You have to define accounts for difference posting via OB00 transaction.

    Regards,

    Eli

    Thank you to everyone for your help. I've used transaction 1KEL and it worked.
