Resetting Posting on Basis of Valuation History in Enhancement Pack 5
After postings have been made, you can reset them at a later point in time. For this, the program determines the relevant foreign currency items (line items) and foreign currency balances (accounts) as well as any corresponding valuation differences from the entries in the valuation history. In the case of foreign currency items, the system also creates a reset posting if the items were cleared before or on the specified valuation key date. It is not possible prior to enhancement pack 5 to reset posting, if the items were cleared before or on the specified valuation key date. This new functionality is only available via Enhancement pack 5.
Example showing that in the case of the foreign currency items, the system also creates a reset posting if the items were cleared before or on the specified valuation key date.
In example invoice and credit memo are created and then foreign currency valuation is carried out. Next the invoice and credit memo are cleared on date prior to the foreign currency valuation and then a reset is carried out using the foreign currency valuation program even though documents have been cleared prior to specified key date for foreign currency valuation.

Prior to Enhancement pack 5 it is not possible to reset revaluation for open items that have been cleared with a clearing date before or equal to the revaluation key date. In the above example the invoice was created on the 01.06.2011 and credit memo on the 10.06.2011. The foreign currency valuation took place on the 30.06.2011 and then the invoice and credit memo were cleared on the 13.06.2011. With the new functionality of enhancement pack 5, the reset is possible using transaction FAGL_FC_VAL.
