    Hi,

    The message C171 comes from material Ledger. If C171 arises, then it

    is completely correct, otherwise it would lead to an inconsistency in ML

    currency. In this case something is not correct with the currency types

    in ML. It assumes that the currency types are in ML different than at

    the beginning. Examine the currency types to this order item with

    transaction OB22 and/or CKM9 and table CKMLV and correct them, so that

    MR11 can book.

    They can look at themselves order history with CKMLOH and examine

    therein the vouchers in all currencies. and correct them, so that MR11

    can book. They can look at themselves order history with CKMLOH and

    examine therein the vouchers in all currencies.

    Always activate the material ledger for a complete company code

    and copy all currencies from FI. This is the only way to ensure

    the reconciliation with FI.

    In addition, it is recommended that you activate the material

    ledger for a complete company code because the invoice

    verification can neither store invoices that contain materials

    from plants the material ledgers of which are active nor more

    materials from plants the material ledger of which is not active.

    Please take a look in the note 425487, it describes the issue extensive.

    Please also review and apply the following notes:

    843022 MR11: Error log, purchase order number is missing

    790426 MR11: Functionality

    Also, take a look on the follow note for more information:

    Please check if your currency in PO and invoice are same.

    Maintain the currency conversion.Check with your FI consultant
