Message no. AAPO518

Hello -

I am getting an Error message in ASKB (Periodc Asset Posting)

Tolerance exceeded for differences due to currency translation

Message no. AAPO518


An error occurred during translation of currency amounts into the parallel currency using currency type 30.

The document balance is 106.669,15- USD and it cannot be corrected automatically.

System Response

The document cannot be created.


Check for the cause of the error.

This i resolved it by Activiting the Derived Depreatction area As real area check box.

Now can any one help me out what would be the Impact/Trouble we face once we Derived Depreactoin check box is activated. Is this the correct Process we do are is there any other process which can resolve this Error message.

Thanks in Advance

    • Hello Vinay,

      As SAP note 1652657 explains, that the error is triggered initially by a missing customizing.

      The cause of AAPO518 is most likely, that a derived area should be set as "Derived depreciation area as real area" due to the circumstances of the depr. areas which the derived area stemmed from.

      As per the F1 Documentation on this indicator it says:

      Treat Derived Depreciation Area As Real Area
      Specifies that a depreciation area that was originally defined as a
      derived depreciation area is treated as a real depreciation area in
      the target company code. This means that not only depreciation
      differences can be posted to special depreciation reserve accounts,
      but also real differences in acquisition and production costs can be
      posted to balance sheet accounts.

      If you set this indicator, then the system posts the real difference
      between two depreciation areas, if the original depreciation area was
      defined as the difference between two other areas (for example,
      special depreciation area 03 defined as the difference between areas
      01 and 02). If the source depreciation area is not a derived
      depreciation area, then the system removes the indicator during the
      input check.

      Please take into account that after this change of the customizing for the derived area, the accounts in the account determination for this derived depr. area also have to be maintained for APC accounts in addition!

      If you so execute ASKB for the company code, the error AAPO518 should disappear. Should you get errors regarding missing account settings, then like I mentioned above, you have to maintain all the accounts in
      transaction AO90.

      regards Bernhard
