Field help (ECARLEDTYP) 

For this field, select the Legal or IAS ledger type.

Regardless of the Assessment method, the process is carried out for a selected ledger. If the variance entry generation involves several ledgers, you must relaunch the function.

The journal entry type used must be manual, single-ledger.

When the variance journal generation is launched, if the ledger is the original ledger of an automatic ledger, both ledgers are impacted at the entry level. The type of exchange rate used to reevaluate the automatic ledger is then necessarily the one used for the original manual ledger.

The amount of the variance between the automatic ledger and its original manual ledger can have a different sign (credit or debit). If so, the process does not generate entries on two distinct accounts, but the automatic ledger inherits the variance account from its original manual ledger.

For both assessment methods, the accounts used to post the variance are those defined on lines 5, 6, 7 and 8 in the Chart of accountsfunction (GESCOA) when no variance account is defined for the reevaluated account. Otherwise, the variance accounts defined at the account level, lines 1, 2, 3 and 4, are used. The available values are:

Debit balance decrease

Debit balance increase

Credit balance decrease

Credit balance increase

Note: If a conversion variance account is used in the Account fields of the Accounts function (GESGAC), the process still checks that all the Miscellaneous accounts (lines 5, 6, 7, 8) are defined. If not, the following error message is returned: "Undefined accounts."
