    Hi,

    please check your customizing settings under

    Currencies

    -> Define Translation Ratios for Currency Translation

    Please check the relevant currency pair for exchange rate type M. I think that exchange rate type EURO is maintained in column alternative ERT.

    But please do not delete the content of this field!!! You have to enter new entries with a valid from date in the future.

    Best regards,

    Andrea

    Hi

    What is the need to change it?. You can maintain M as well. Also not clear what "still its picking exchange rate type euro" means?. What are you trying to do?

    Hi,

    Can you check what is the exchange rate type for foreign currency documents..

    Hopefully they have given "M" in that particualr field thats what it is picking M rate..if you dont maintain any exchange rate type then it will pick average bydefault and if you maintain the exchange rate then system will pick the mentioned ex rate while document posting..

    hope undersatnd and you can assign points if you are cleared.

    Thanks,

    Vasu..

      Hi Ajay,

      Use menu path SPRO -> Financial Accounting -> Financial Accounting Global Settings -> Company Code -> Multiple Currencies -> Define Additional Local Currencies. M is assigned here.

      You cannot change M once there is transaction data posted in the company code unless you delete the data, which is not a good idea except under extraordinary circumstances.

      Best of luck
