Chaging Currency for a company code


I want to Activate a group currency to a company code (Using 0B22)

But i have following Problems

1.Open Item exists in a larger quantity to reverse and Repost it againg after activating Group Currency

2.Depreciation values and asset values exist in local currency

3.Controlling Documents Exist in Local currency

just activating OB22 will not solve my problem.

Can i create a new company code and then activate group currency and then Upload the old company code data??

I have read all the concern notes (73848,87180,97596,89531,51840,27621,39919)

    Dear expert

    No. You can't do it in a live environment. Create a new company code and move all the balances from the old to the new one.

    After documents have been posted it is not allowed to change the

    customizing in OB22 within SAP Standard. The reason is, that

    documents which already have been posted would have different

    settings (no entries) in the currency fields of the parallel

    currency, which would lead to problems e.g. during clearing those

    documents with documents which will be posted after the changing

    of the customizing.

    If you want to change the customizing in OB22 you have e.g. to change

    all the documents which already have been posted, too. So all documents

    already posted with one currency need to be converted as they will only

    have amounts in one currency field (even if it should be later the same

    currency and the same value in the second currency field as in the

    first currency field of the document).

    If only FI is active and you only want to activate one group

    currency, which will be the same as your local currency and depending

    on the customizing settings of your group currency you expect the

    same amounts in your group currency as in your local currency field

    of each document, the conversion of the documents should not be too

    difficult. Please refer to SAP note 39919 for further clarification.

    I hope this information can help you!

      Hi Raquel

      The conversion of the data is a difficult task as i have 8 yrs of data with me..

      If i start changing the currency then foreigh exchange gain and loss account will be hitting every time.

      What about the asset value and depreciation area??
