ECC6 - How to change exchange rate type for leading ledger?

IMG > Ledgers > Ledger > Define currencies of leading ledger

The leading ledger portion is grayed out and always defaulting to exchange rate type M.

Is there any way to use other exchange rate type?

    It is not possible to maintain the first entry in OB22. As stated in the online documentation the system always uses exchange rate type M for posting and clearing.

    This is the standard functionality of the system. OB22 does not allow for the exchange rate type for the 1st local currency to be changed. Checking in our systems this field is set to M for all our company codes.

    In such a situation, you can only manually override the group currency amount when entering your document.

    The default type for 1st local currency KURST of M cannot be changed. SAP does not allow for customers to setup a company code with an exchnage rate type other than M for the 1st local currency (because this could lead to exchange rate differences in the system which are not allowed).
