3256816 - Define Currency Translation Method - Blank FS Item


When setting up a currency translation method, would like for the CT difference to be posted on the original FS item with subitem 980, subitem category 1.

When trying to leave the Debit and Credit Item roles empty, the system provides the error: 'Specify items or additional acct assignments for differential'.

Therefore, cannot save an adjustment to the method without always having the CT difference being posted to the CTA account.

  2. Copy standard method S0905.
  3. Navigate to sequence number 10.
  4. Press Save.
  5. Get the error: Specify items or additional acct assignments for differential.


 The root cause is that the included FS item in the selection object of the method step have different breakdown requirements.
