SAP BPC Currency Translation - Periodic Model Issue

Dear Experts,

I am sure , I am not the first person facing this issue but was surprised that I have not been able to locate this issue in any older community posts. Please feel free to redirect me to a post where this has been already answered.


We are on SAP BPC 10.1 Classic NW for Consolidation and using a Periodic model to perform legal consolidation. We are stuck with a currency translation issue.

The issue:

Lets say in January , 2016 - 100 Pound is posted in ECC. When the data is extracted to BPC and converted to USD we have following two records created in BPC

Lets say, in April the ECC posting is reversed. Then two new records gets generated for the reversal entry.

But as above, the values in LC becomes 0 where the values in USD do not become 0 due to changes in exchange rate.

As a result our financial statement is displaying in incorrect values in USD.

Can anybody advise, if they have encountered a similar issue and any possible solution ?

      Thanks Vadim for your response, That is incorrect because the source system in ( ECC) becoming 0 , where as BPC is still holding numbers. For accruals, which is just a book and not an actual spend ...FX impact is getting realized although there has not been any transaction. :(
