You wish to activate Open Item Management for a G/L Account but encounter the following errors:

  • Error Message no. FAGL_SWITCH_OP105 "Balance of ledger & differs from balance of line items of the account“

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open 'Schedule Accounting Data Corrections' (App ID F4622)
  2. Select 'Create'
  3. Choose job template 'Activate Open Item Management for G/L Accounts'


  4. Select 'Start Immediately'


  5. Enter desired values 


  6. Select 'Schedule'
  7. View log and see errors



The system performs the switch to open item management on your Start date. For the items posted in the future will cause balances in the account and in the ledgers - are NOT identical.

If there are items posted in the future exist, above errors can be caused.


This is a limitation of our activation tool. So the activation can only work if you make sure that the items in the future are reversed or offset or just wait for the future posting date to do it.
