Hi all,

My client is having Controlling Area currrency as EUR and Company code currency as INR. When activity cost is posted from cost center to order/cost center the value in the secondary cost element is maintained in EUR for transaction currency/object currency/Controlling area currency even though my object currency is INR. What may be the reason.
