FI Documents with two different foreign currencies

hi, experts,

My customer has a request that they want to post in one FI document if they use USD to pay EUR while their local currency is BHD. In my understanding it is impossible to deal with two different foreign currencies in one document, so I suggested them to use a clearing account, and complete this business in two vouchers as below:

De: Prepay of vendor 100 EUR

Cr: Clearing bank account 100 EUR

De: Clearing bank account 122 USD

Cr: Bank account-USD 122 USD

The balance of clearing bank account is 0 in local currency.

Our customer refused to accept this solution. Could anyone kindly tell me another solution about this question. Thank u very much!

Best Regards!

    Hi judy

    How can you be sure to use clearing A/c for 2 currency ? Then you need to convert One currency manually and use it . I think that's not feasible solution .

    After posting SAP displays Doc in transaction currency , compny code currency and group currency .This you can check in FB03.

    Now your Q on payment to vendors goes .

    When you buy goods of say 1000 EUR then you need to pay them 1000 EUR right ?

    You also said that USD used to pay EUR . This means that is not part of transaction of vendor. If you have bank account in EUR for making payment to vendor Then use same .

    So it all depends on bank account currency you have opened with bank.

    So donot use clearing Ac for making adjustment . Pay to vendor in desired currency after making sure what amount to be paid to them
