With context to parallel accounting, Delta "posting" means to post one document (the international one) with an amount of EUR 5000 and the other (the local one) with EUR 7000. Delta posting means that you first decide which valuation is "historically grown". Let's assume it should be local one. So the first document is posted with the amount of EUR 7000 and in the second document, you will only post the difference. An amount of EUR -2000 has to be entered. True False.
If you decide to use delta documents, you will get a mixture of delta and complete documents. This is because SAP programs, such as the foreign currency valuation run (program FAGL_FC_VALUATION), are not able to post delta values. In addition, delta postings are only possible with manual transactions. True False.
