F-53: problem with open items in foreign currency

Hi you all!

1) My currencies are: DC = GBP; LC = CLP; LC2 = EUR; LC3 = USD

2) I have posted an invoice with Document Currency = GBP, and i understand the amounts that have been posted in the other currencies. IE: the amount in LC3 - USD = 529,71 (it used the exchange rate GBP/USD from OB08). Perfect.

3) Now I want to pay the invoice in USD and it´s 529,71 in the invoice. The date is the same as the invoice. So in F-53 I put as Document Currency = USD, and I was expecting to see in the open items, the ammount in USD from the invoice, this is 529,71. BUT the amount is different and it's impossible for me to find WHY is the difference!!. IMPORTANT: the exch rate GBP/USD is the same in the invoice and in the payment. In fact i'am using the same date !!

It could be that SAP is doing a kind of "triangulation" of currencies ??. I was tested a lot of calculations with the currencies, but i don't get the 520,48 USD showing in the open items in F-53.

Any idea please? Someone could help me?. If you need further information please ask me.

Thank you !!

    Hi Silvina,

    Can you check in OB08 / Table TCURR for entry USD to GBP. If it exists this issue may araise.

    Since you have posted invoice with GBP system picked GBP to USD.

    Now you are trying to post USD entry. Now system try to find USD - ?? (Currency) if it exists then system picks the same other wise system consider existing one as GBP-USD.
