Exchange rate difference between postings with exchange rate type P and M

Hi all,

I have a question : in my current client two different currencies are used - controling area currency USD and company code currency AED.

For planning purposes is used exchange rate type P (ex 0,274 USD= 1 AED), for actual posting is used exchange rate type M.

Internal order budgeting currency is object currency which is AED. Availability control is based on object currency (AED). Availability control is working fine.

My problem is when the total budget is consumed in object currency (AED), there is no available budget amount in AED, but in CO currency there is available amount which is due to the exchange rate differeces.

For example :

Budget is 1000 AED = 274 USD (based on the P exchange rate type -> 0,274 USD = 1 AED)

Actual posting is 1000 AED = 271 USD (based on the current exchange rate - > 0,271 USD = 1 AED)

Finally when I run report S_ALR_87013019:

  • in AED , there is budget =1000 AED , actual = 1000 AED, the available budget amount in AED = 0 ,
  • but in USD, there is budget = 274 USD, actual = 271 USD, the available budget amount in USD = 3 USD

How to solve this problem ?

    As far as my knowledge that the availability control will always be performed in the controlling area currency.

    You can create the budget in AED, but the SAP system will convert the budget to USD and perform the availability control in USD, so if there is any difference in the exchange rate during the period it will compromise the availability of the budget in the internal order.
