    Thanks Shakeel for sharing. Do you know why we need a valuation area here? And is it possible to regroup using different two valuation areas for the same company code and same month?

      Hi Mohamed,

      Regrouping might be handled differently in different accounting principles, you must enter the valuation area in the application. This tells the system which rules to follow for which ledger to update and how to post the document.
