Define currencies in Leading ledger

Good Day

Before proceeding with making the required settings specific to foreign

currency valuation and foreign currency translation I first need to

validate the settings for the local currency and the group currency in

the legal entity in order to post valuation and translation as they

should be.

Follow IMG menu path Financial Accounting (New) > Financial Accounting

Global Settings (New) > Ledgers > Ledger > Define Currencies of Leading ledger

For 1st local currency, source currency (Srce curr.) is always selected

as Transaction Currency by default. This default selection ensures

posting of foreign exchange differences in company code or functional

currency during Foreign Currency Valuation. However, for 2nd local

currency, you need to select 2, making 1st local currency or functional

currency the source for translation into group or presentation

However in TFG system config our 2nd local currency, we have selected

1 - transaction currency. When I try to change this incorrect setting I

get a warning message from SAP which states that if the additional

local currency for the company code is changed it will lead to

inconsistencies in the currencies. (see the attached) And also to

contact SAP.

Please can you advise what are the consequences for our SAP Production

system if I change the source currency from a 1 to a 2.... in our 2nd currency.

Kind Regards

    If production system have transaction data using current currency,

    You need SAP's SLO(SAP System Landscape Optimization)  service releated to currency conversion.

    If you activated material ledger using  multi valuation function, you will meet problem due to currency


    I recommand that you should contact SAP SLO's team.
