Currency Translation without LC



Does SAP BPC support currency translation where LC is not being used? (I am referring here to the standard Rules-based Currency Translation)

In other words, let's assume the TB data loaded has USD, GBP, EUR, ZAR, etc as the RPTCURRENCY in the FACT table (not LC as is typically done).

Let's also assume, that the Group Reporting Currency is GBP.

Will the translation convert USD / EUR / ZAR into GBP and leave the original GBP alone (or convert at 1:1)? Or is it not designed do this?

If so, what do I set the CURRENCY_TYPE and the REPORTING_CURRENCY properties to for each of the currencies in the RPTCURRENCY dimension?

Also I assume I set the REPORTING property of GBP to "Y" in the INPUTCURRENCY Dimension in the RATES Model. Yes?

Much appreciated.

Kind Regards
