1876756 - Reconciliation Report Local Currency And Line Item Currency Not Matching / Transaction Currency Amount Missing


You are checking the reconciliation report. The amounts in local currency and line item currency don't match even though the currencies maintained are the same,


you are checking the Journal Entries and find the Transaction Currency field is not filled after posting.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. In the Periodic Tasks view, select Reconciliation subview.
  3. Select any Reconciliation Report.
  4. Go to the General Ledger Tab in the report to see the Local Currency Amount and Line Item Amounts:

You observe that they are not matching although the currencies used are same,


  1. Go to the General Ledger work center and here to the Journal Entries view.
  2. Highlight a Journal Entry and press Edit.

 You observe that the Transaction Currency Amount is not displayed.


In several cases and from the business point of view it is possible to not report a Transaction Amount. For instance in postings related to fixed assets, inventory, production etc.  material movements or production processes are documented without an effect on the Profit and Loss statement.

If the transaction in real world, when it effects the Income Statement, amounts are to be documented (Invoice Postings for example) the Transaction currency amount is to be displayed in the Accounting Document/ Journal Entry. If the transaction 'only' documents quantities (material movements for instance), the Transaction Currency Amount will not be displayed in the Journal Entry.


System behavior is correct. For the following transaction types the transaction currency amount is not filled:

  • 301: Goods Receipt from Supplier
  • 302: Customer Return
  • 303: Goods Receipt from Production
  • 304: Goods Receipt without Reference
