Translation Date


Currently translation date for foreign currency is taken as posting date. We need to change the same to Document Date.

We have tried the substitution rule with user exit, but unfortunately could not get thru.

Can anyone suggest the solution for the above.

    hi Sankar,

    definetly the substitution is the solution for this: I did it for several cients already. You have to debug why does not it work.

      GGB1, create subst, create step

      now a popup comes up and you have to select translation date

      if the field (BKPF-WWERT) is not in the list you have to chang e the corresponding entry in table GB01 (BEXCLUDE has to be empty).

      When you select translation date, you choose field-to-field substitution and you enter BKPF-BLDAT (document date) as source field. Save!

      After that you have to activate in OBBH as well

      hope this helps
