Real time integration FI CO afterwards

Hi experts,

Is it possible to activate the integration between co and fi in real time afterwards?

Until now, my client has not activated this and thus if he settled or made some controlling postings there is no posting in fi, just in CO (this is normal)

But now he wants to have that integration : post in CO--> post in FI

Is it possible to activate this during the year or do i need to wait until the year closing?

For now, any "pure CO" posting is done, only FI posting was done (with the equal posting in CO)

Which steps do I need to complete?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Chris

    Though you can activate it any time technically, its better if you do it at the start of the new fiscal year for the sake of simplicity

    Just create a real time integration variant and assign it your company code... Here in, you choose for what sort of cross postings in CO (i.e. cross business area, pr center, etc), the FI postings have to be triggered

    IMG Path is Financial Accounting (New) > Financial Accounting Global Settings (New) > Ledgers > Real-Time Integration of Controlling with Financial Accounting

    IMG Steps are Define Variants for Real-Time Integration / Assign Variants for Real-Time Integration to Company Codes / Account Determination for Real-Time Integration

    Hope this helps

    Hi Chris,

    In case you activate the FI-CO real time integration during the year,

    You may need to execute the transaction FAGLCOFITRNSFRCODOCS to transfer the CO documents posted till now

    See the documentation bellow:

    Short text

    Transfer CO Documents into External Accounting


    With this program, you can transfer into financial accounting any CO documents that were posted during internal allocations in CO (such as assessments) in cases where automatic transfer failed.


    The report can be useful when online CO->FI update is activated subsequently.


    Online update CO->FI was not active at the time the CO documents were posted.

    CO documents that were posted after online CO->FI update was activated but were not updated to FI due to error messages in financial accounting are automatically added to a worklist. This also applies to CO documents for which error messages were issued when this report was executed.

    The worklist is executed with transaction FAGLCOFIFLUP.
