JVA Foreign Currency Revaluation


We are implementing SAP-JVA for our client with New GL Active (Document Split not active). We wish to do the Foreign Currency Revaluation in JVA instead of FI using T-Code GJ91 (JVA Open Item Foreign Currency Revaluation).

As I understand, for the Unrealized Foreign Gain/Loss posting, the Cost Object that should get posted for the said UXD Loss/Gain Account should be the Original Cost Object (WBS in our case) derived from the expense line item. Hence, the Cost Object may/will vary for each line-item in the Unrealized Foreign Gain/Loss account. But the system is not picking the expense line Original Cost Object (WBS) inspite of maintaining the configurations and assignments in GJ56 for Exchange Difference Account, GJBA for assigning the respective UXD Loss/Gain and Balance Sheet Adjustment Account. Instead, while executing the Foreign Revaluation for Open Items in JVA, the system gives an Error saying that Cost Object is required for the UXD Loss/Gain Account as it is a Cost Element. When we maintain the OKB9 Default Account Assignment (Cost Center) for the Unrealized Foreign Gain/Loss account, then the Error is not there but the Cost Object is the one maintained in OKB9. Ideally it should be the Cost Object of the expense line item.

However, if I create the Unrealized Exchange Loss/Gain Accounts without Cost Element (example 6210720-Loss and 6110820-Gain), and assign the respective settings in GJ56 with Cost Element GL (6210710-Loss and 6110810-Gain), I still cannot post the UXD since the Program picks T8JK-COSTS which has GL Accounts with Cost Element and thus requires a Cost Object. The Balance Sheet Adjustment Account is though picked from T030H-LKORR in all cases.

We have implemented the SAP Note 998431 to enable GJ91 posting in New GL. I can see many other SAP Notes on the related issue but am not sure on which is the aappropriate note to be applied, if any.

We wish to process GJ91, GJNO and GJ90 in JVA in respect to Foreign Currency Revaluation. We wish to get the postings to Original Cost Object for all Exchange Difference related postings. Kindly suggest and recommend the relevant procedure and appropriate guidance to get things working.

Kindly revert back if you need any further clarification or information.

    Hi, as you mentioned, the new GL is active in your client, when the New General Ledger is active, GJ91 does not run because SAPF100 does not run. In such cases, GJ91 must use the new report FAGL_FC_VAL.

    Please find the SAP note 998431 - GJ91: Adapting report to run with FAGL_FC_VAL

    Hi Amit,

    Shuang's answer is correct, you should use FAGL_FC_VAL.

    Have you activate NewGL Scenario for JVA ? It's available since ERP EhP 6

    Kind Regards

      Agree you should use FAGL_FC_VAL.

      However, in a JVA active environment, you may need to apply OSS Note 1731120 to remove the JVA check in the program. As far as I know you can still use GJNO, but it will only revalue in the leading ledger. If you have set up parallel ledgers you will need to use FAGL_FC_VAL.
