Wrong LC amount in AP Invoice. Amount in AP invoice got divided instead of multiplied to Ex. Rate

Hello SAP Experts,

We have issue with one AP Invoice. The LC Amt was computed by dividing Amount with Exchange Rate which is wrong. For all other transactions the Amount is multiplied with Ex. Rate which is the correct computation. Only this one transaction it divided instead of multiplied.

This is the scenario:

Company LC is USD

Exchange Rate posting is set to "Direct"

AP Invoice is created in JPY with exchange rate 0.01. Total Amount is JPY 1,000

The journal entry posted got LC Amt of USD 100,000 which come from (JPY 1,000 / 0.01). This is wrong.

We expect it to be USD 10 only which should come from (JPY 1,000 * 0.01)

This error only happened to one invoice. I cannot recreate the error. I duplicated the AP Invoice then posted it to test, it is correct, with Amt LC USD 10.

Is this SAP bug? The version is quite old. Version 8.8.

Best regard,

    Have you checked exchange rate per row? Does it state 0,01?

    Also, did you create that AP invoice from another document (lets say purchase order) using "Copy From" function? Maybe someone entered wrong exchange rate 100 on base document, and used base document exchange rate when copying to AP Invoice.

      Thank you for your reply. The AP Invoice is copied from GRPO. I checked backend both GRPO and AP Invoice header and rows, the exchange rate is consistently 0.01.

      I duplicated the GRPO then copied to AP Invoice, the AP Invoice LC amount is USD 10 which is correct on my testing.

      Only one particular invoice getting this problem.

      Best regards,
