Hello All,

My Bank Accounts (Main,Outgoing & Incoming) are maintained in Foreign Currency (USD).

Local Currency - KES

When i am posting outgoing payment, amount in USD is coming right, but when i display currency in KES ie local Currency, amount in Bank GL is coming wrong.

eg: Bank - 100 usd cr Bank - 50 kes cr

Vendor - 110 usd dr. Vendor - 250 kes dr

VAT - 10 usd cr. VAT - 23 kes cr

ex gain/loss - 177

Please help to resolve this issue.

Thanks & Regards,

Pooja Saraf

Hi Pooja,

Check the exchange rate in F-53 (the field next to currency. The invoice ex rate is 2,27 (250/110) but the payment Ex Rate is 0,5 ( 50 / 100 ) .

Check OB22 to know the Ex Rate type assigned to your company and OBA7 and see if your document has got a different Ex Rate Tyep.

Validate your ex rate with OB08 and EWCT.

Kind Regards

Hello Gustavo,

No Exchange Rate were manually maintained at the time of posting.These entries have already been posted in January & millions of amount has gone into Exchange Gain/Loss Account.

I checked OB22 - exchange rate type maintained is M but in OBA7 exchange rate type field is left blank.

I even checked in OB08 & EWCT, exchange rates are coming right as maintained in OB08.

Kindly enlighten me on how to solve the error ie huge amount in exchange gain/loss amount.

I am not able to replicate this type of error now while i am trying to post this type of document. I need to find the cause of this error as i am not able to replicate the same error as of now.

Thanks & Regards,

Pooja Saraf.
