  • GL Master - Only Balances in Local Currency

    I am curious when to check the 'Only Balances in Local Currency' (OBILC) box on a Open Item GL.  I've read information from multiple sources and interpret that it should be set on all OI accounts with a few exceptions like recon accounts for vendors and customers.  In my past experience OBILC was checked for most open item accounts but the company I'm currently with has the opposite logic.  With the box not checked, the clearing is process is quite complex and time-consuming.  We are on the classic ledger in 6.0 and have companies in multiple local currencies with group currency of USD.  Just looking for input because I'm doubting my interpretation of when to check this box.
    As an example, the GL would be an AP accrual account with postings in multiple doc currencies.  The company code local currency is MXN, and Group Currency is USD.  Should the OBILC be checked?
    Any input is appreciated.

    'Only Balances in Local Currency' (OBILC) is used when you do not want any foreign excange difference to be posted at the time of clearing. When this indicator is active, then the balances in database tables are updated in local currency only and thus the clearing can happen in local currency only.
    In your below example scenario, you can chosse not to activate this check OBILC, if your company is not interested in doing foreign currency valuation difference posting.

  • Remove tick Only balance in local currency

    Dear Experts,
    One of my Balance Sheet GL Account has a tick Only Balances in Local Currency and I want to change the properties of GL Master by removing the tick since the same is to be taken in Valuation Program.
    I have made the balance NIL of the Account but still I am not able to change the properties of GL Master and get a Message no. FH085.Request you to kindly advice on the same.

               Please check FS10N on FBL3N for local currency for  closing balance to some GLs and nullifying the balance. if there is any. If local currency is 0, only then you can switch off balances in local currency check box in FS00.

  • Only Balances in local currency

    By mistake we activated only Balances in local currency setting for a GL account at the time of Go-live. Also we had done  postings to this account with foreign currency and local currency. Now we want to do foreign currency valuation for this account, but the problem is up to now all the transaction are recorded in local currency only because of the reported setting to GL master, so system is not finding any valuation differences for foreign currency transactions.
    What can be done to update the transaction currency balances for the posted line items without reversing?
    Is there any program to update the balances in transaction currency as well?
    We have many line items in that GL account which have to be revaluated.
    Experts, please give me the suggestion.

  • Open item mgt and only balances in local currency

    Hi ,
    What is open item management and only banlances in local currency ?
    for which gl accounts v select open item management and only balances in local currency
    Pls explain urgent

    1. Only Balances in Local Currency:
    Indicates that balances are updated only in local currency when users post items to this account.
    Use: You would set this indicator for accounts in which you do not want the system to update transaction figures separately by currency.
    It is required to set theis indicator in:
    1.  cash discount clearing accounts
    2. GR/IR clearing accounts.
    It cannot be set in reconciliation accounts for customers or vendors. Setting it in all other instances is optional.
    Open item management:
    Determines that open items are managed for this account.
    Explanation: Items posted to accounts managed on an open item basis are marked as open or cleared. The balance of these accounts is always equal to the balance of the open items.
    Procedure: Set up accounts with open item management if offsetting entries are to be assigned to the postings made to these accounts. Postings to these accounts represent incomplete transactions.
    A goods receipt/invoice receipt (GR/IR) clearing account should be managed on an open item basis so that you can check at any time whether invoices have been received for the goods received for an order.
    Set up accounts without open item management if no offsetting entry is to be made against a posting to this account.
    Accounts that are managed on an open item basis include:
    Clearing accounts:
    Bank clearing account
    Payroll clearing account
    Cash discount clearing account
    GR/IR clearing account
    Accounts that are not managed on an open item basis:
    Bank accounts
    Tax accounts
    Raw material accounts
    Reconciliation accounts
    Hope this is helpful. Pleas assign points if it is.

  • Only balance in local currency

    our base currency is UDS. One of the GL ( bank account in Germany ) is set up as document currency ( euro ) and " only in local currency " check box  is unchecked ( FS00 , control tab ). Now  when I try to load the plan data into system, all the values goes well except this GL. I used manual entry to load the value (Gp12 ) into this GL (plan ).It did not work.
    Now I tried to change the check box ( FS00 ) but it does not allow as there is balance into that. First I am not clear why this one account was set up like that.Can anybody suggest me how to fix this "only local currency" issue.

    Hi Satya,
    Since you have created the g/l account with account currency EUR and which is different from your company code currency (USD) it will only accept the postings in EUR. If an account is set up in company code currency then it will accept postings in all currencies. Usually bank accounts are maintained in currencies other than company code currency and in this case I am not sure why you have created a P&L account in currency other than Company code currency.
    The indicator "Only balances in local currency" controls the display of balances via FS10N transaction and if you have unchecked that indicator then system should supposedly display the balances by transaction currency but in your case since, your account currency is EUR and the g/l account can only accept postings in EUR it doesnt really matter because it will only display balances in EUR since all the postings going to the above account will be only EUR.
    As far as ur problem is concerned; looks like u r loading numbers in currency other than EUR and that is why it is bombing out. You have to zero out the balance in the account first and then have to change the account currency to USD if you want to plan in diff currencies on that account.

  • Deactivate "Balance in local currency" in GL Account master data

    Hi all,
    In the system I'm working on, for every P&L GL Account the flag "Balance in local currency" is checked.
    My client required to have a report for the P&L in document currency.
    With this setting it is not possibile to get this information.
    I would like to deactivate the flag "Balance in local currency" for the P&L GL Accounts but the system requires the balance of the GL Account egual to zero.
    Is there a way to uncheck the flag? Have you ever executed the activity?
    Do you know if SAP defined a program to deactivate the "Balance in local currency"?

    Generally only balance in local currency checked for B/S GL accounts
    Follow Standard possessor to active / de-active only balance in local currency chek box.
    I hope there is no standared report available to activae / deactive only balance in local currency.

  • GL account char - XSALH "Indicator:Only Manage Balances in Local Currency"

    Hello experts,
    Regarding transaction FS00 or FSS0, i would like someone to give me a clear view of the utility of value field XSALH "Indicator: Only Manage Balances in Local Currency".
    When creating a GL account, from a technical perpestice, in which case i should activate this flag and in which case i should not activate it ?
    What are the different impact for the user, except the fact that balances are updated only in local currency ?
    Thanks in advance,
    Nicolas GORECKI

    If the indicator Only Balances in Local Currency is selected in the master record, transactions figures are only managed for amounts translated into local currency.
    You should select this field for clearing accounts where you want to clear accounts by assigning items with the same local currency amount with one another, without necessitating exdchange rate difference postings.
    The indicator must be set in cash discount and GR/IR clearing accounts. This should not be activated for Reconciliation accounts for customer and vendors.
    This indicator is usually set in balance sheet accounts that are not managed in foreign currencies.
    IF this indicator is not set, to clear the open items, both the local and foreign currency amounts of the items to be clared must match. In such a case, it may be required to post an exchange rate difference postings.

  • Balances in Local Currency GL Account Setting

    If I check this flag for a GL account and do the following what will happen:
    1) Go into FB50 for a USD based company code
    2) Set the document currency to CAD
    3) Post to that same account with the Balances in Local Currency Flag checked off
    Also when and why would this ever need to be checked off for an account?

    If your company code currency is USD and you are posting few documents in CAD in April for. e.g. total amount for the month of April in currency CAD is 25,000 then
    1. If "Only balance in local currency" selected
    You will not be able to see balance in CAD in FS10N for the month of April
    1. If "Only balance in local currency" not selected
    In FS10N you will be able see balance in CAD currency separately for the month of April.
    Try it out.
