Currency Conversion not working in SAPGUI 6.2

Hi SDN Community

Has anyone into this issue, and if you know how to solve without upgrading the GUI level.

The problem:

Basically the user is not able to execute Currency Conversion on some reports.The user is currently on GUI 6.2.

I have tried the same thing with GUI 6.2 and had the same problem, executing on GUI 6.4 resulted in occasional runtime errors.

Users with GUI 7.1, can execute the Currency Conversion successfully.

Thank you.


As BHP still uses GUI 6.2 on it's SOE, we would like to know if this problem can be corrected without upgrading the GUI.

      Dear Customer,

      Please be awared that

      as of 30.09.2005, only limited support is available for SAP GUI 620

      Also SAPGUI640 is desupported since Oct.14 2008,

      We highly suggest you to use SAPGUI710 instead.

      Btw, you can try below steps to completely uninstall the exist SAPGUI

      and then do the reinstallation.

      1,Remove current GUI using the uninstall parameter - Note 510048

      C:/program files/SAP/Frontend is properly removed. Otherwise, delete

      it manually.

      3. Make sure that no other versions of SAPgui exist on your PC. Please

      refer to SAP Note 314973 to remove all traces of previous GUIs.

      4. Remove everything in your recycle bin, then reboot your PC.

      It is very important to clear your recycle bin and reboot your PC

      first below re-installing your SAPgui again. Otherwise, if the dlls

      are still in your recycle bin, they will not be properly


      5. Install 6.20 Gui - applying the latest sap setup patches and patch up to the latest gui patch level from

      currently is available the Patch 74.
