Valuation Strategy for Activities

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone tell me where the valuation strategy used for activities is? I noticed that our valuation strategy is set to "1" and its using a planned exchange rate type with a really old date. Where is that field stored and how can I change it so that for actual activity postings through KB21N, I can have it changed to the current price and use the current exchange rate within exchange rate type M for the given posting period?

      Dear Petter,

      The field "value date" cannot be modified, in agreement with message in the customizing:

      "Value Date for Currency Translation

      The value date in planning determines which daily exchange rates apply for currency translation.

      • If you enter a date, the R/3 System uses the exchange rate for that day in all periods.

      • If you do not enter a value date, the system translates currency by period. The R/3 System determines an exchange rate based on the starting dates from each period, which includes potential exchange rate fluctuations in a fiscal year.


      This does not apply to accrual calculations or overheads in the plan. You enter the vale date in the transaction manually, by choosing Extras -> Value date."
