    Dear Rana,

    Hoping It is a standard behavior.

    If the exchange rate is different between GRN posting and Invoice posting date (provided fixed exchange rate is not ticked) then the difference exchange rate amount gets posted to different account (which might be your inventory G/L reference to Import).

    Please verify.

    Sample calculation for your reference. Difference 1455.811

    PO exchange rate picking from OB08 with a exchange rate type but cross check do you have another exchange rate type assigned to RE( for invoice) document type which causes your concern during invoice document posting.

    • Hi,

      Your local currency is GBP and foreign currency is EUR.

      Your value is "ZERO" in invoice posting with EUR where as GBP currency has some value resulting

      GR/IR clearing posted with EUR in goods receipt document and the same value in EUR posted with invoice posting document.

      As result of exchange rate difference between goods receipt and invoice receipt posting date causing your concern Refer SAP Note:- 2171162

    Hi Rana,

    In standard, there is a possibility for separate posting line for exchange rate difference with zero value. Please check SAP note 331910 - MR1M, MIRO: Postings in foreign currency/local currency (Read section : Exchange rate rounding differences).

    BR, Rosh.
