3253459 - Error message FH738 when attempting to change account currency


  • When attempting to change a G/L account currency the error message FH738 is prompted; "Field "&1" contains an entry, although it is hidden"


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud 


For cash accounts the account currency is filled with company code currency in G/L master data.

If an account currency is maintained with company code currency, any transaction currency can be used during posting. Transaction currency is checked against the currency maintained in the house bank account, which is assigned to the G/L account.


It is not possible to change Account Currency for G/L account master data because for accounts with G/L Account Type as Cash Account and G/L Account Subtype as Bank Reconciliation Account (B) or Bank Sub Account (S).

The currency field is suppressed and this field is always filled with company code currency.
