Process documentation Cross-Checking of Inflation Adjustments  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


When you have calculated the inflation on your nonmonetary items, you can cross-check the result by calculating the inflation on monetary items. The total balance of the nonmonetary accounts must be the same as that of the monetary accounts, since every nonmonetary transaction is reflected on a monetary account at some stage.


You have classified each G/L account as monetary or nonmonetary, by assigning each an inflation key in which you have selected or deselected Monetary acct (Monetary account).

Process Flow

  1. You adjust your nonmonetary accounts in test mode using the Inflation Adjustment of G/L Accounts program.
  2. Run the program in test mode again, but this time for monetary accounts

The amount of inflation calculated must be the same. If not, you trace the source of the error and make the necessary corrections.
