    Hi Anil,

    there are actually more methods how you can supply various external Market data - FX rates, benchmark interest rates (like LIBOR, EURIBOR, etc.), bonds prices, etc. - into the system:

    1. manual entry - this is the most simple method - you just choose an appropriate menu item;
    2. file interface - use SAP trans. TBDM for this purpose - can be used to upload Market data via a text file to your system. The Market data must be stored in a specific format in the text file. for more information, please see http://help.sap.com/saphelp_45b/helpdata/en/35/a7b5629af50d14e10000009b38f9b9/frameset.htm;
    3. via Spreadsheet - use SAP trans. TBEX for this purpose - can be used to upload Market data via .XLS file to your system. The data sheet of the spreadsheet from which you want to transfer the market data must correspond to a defined format. for more information, please see Market Data Transfer from Spreadsheet - Environment - SAP Library;
    4. via Datafeed - this is the most complex and most expensive choice, when your Treasury requires real-time update of Market data. for more information, please see Datafeed - Environment - SAP Library.

    as you can see, the major difference is the frequency of data update and also relevant costs of a selected choice.

    Kind regards,
