Reassignment of an existing company code from a FB fm area to a BCS fm area

Hi. I have a question regarding reassigning company code to a new fm areas. I am doing this in our sandbox. we need to remove the old fm area (FB) and assign the company code to a new fm area (BCS). This is what I did.


1- Created a new FM area 2


2- Deactivated FM global function


3- Deactivated FM area 1


4- Reassigned company code to fm area 2


5- Reactivated FM global function


However, I am getting error message FI636 (Check that you have chosen the right FM area.  You may have to go to the Funds Management implementation guide and deactivate Funds Management before carrying out your assignment, then reactivate it afterwards)


We are not on the New GL


Has anyone tried to reassign an existing cc to a new fm area? Does SAP allow that?  The help documentation says we should be able to do this.




I assigned currency, fiscal year variant and other attributes to the new FM. Now I get message FI673- there is already actual data for FM area xxx which is assigned to company code xxx.
