Exchange Rate Problem

Dear Gurus,

My client has business with over seas customers where they agree to execute a deal on a fixed exchange rate. Since the exchange rate differs from the time of getting an order to raising an Invoice to the time of realization of payment, hence they agree on a fixed exchange rate.

So, I have to raise a Sales Order with that exchange rate (which is different from what is maintained at OB08). So I click on Header icon in Overview screen and maintain the neccessary rate against 'Document Currency'. When I raise a Billing Document after Delivery, the system is calculating at OB08 rate while posting to Accounts and not at the 'Document Currency' value.

I went through the forum bank and some Gurus have given Table names, but I could not follow them properly.

I request you to suggest how to make the Billing Document take the Sales Order level 'Document Currency' value ONLY for posting to Accounts, what ever the OB08 value might be.

Thanks and regards.

Venkat - Hyd

    hi

    Venkat

    In the billing document there are 3 exchange rates, please review:

    VBRP-KURSK

    Exchange Rate for the conversion Loc.currency <-> Doc.currency.

    for Price Determination

    The determination of this exchange rate depends on the setting

    of TVCPFLP-PFKUR in customizing copy-control

    VBRK-KURRF.

    Exchange Rate for the conversion Loc.currency <-> Doc.currency.

    for FI postings

    If there is a manual entry in the sales order field VBKD-KURRF

    (Goto -> Header -> Accounting), then it is copied into VBRK-KURRF.

    Otherwise VBRK-KURRF is determined during invoice creation.

    It is supposed that manual entry has higher priority.

    See the note 36070.

    KOMV-KKURS

    Exchange Rate for the conversion Cond.currency <-> Loc.currency

    at price condition level.

    It is always determined according to the Pricing date.

    See the notes 92613, 97487.

    Regards,

    Thakkar

      Hi

      Venkat

      If I understand your problem u want the exchange rate exact in billing what you have maintain in Sales order if this is the case then you maintain yr required exchange rate in sales order --- header ---accounting --- Exch.rate-acct. the same will go to billing and accounting.

      The above is VBRK-KURRF

      VBRP-KURSK this is what you maintain as Doc. Currency in sales order header.

      The third one I don't have clear idea but u pl explore the same.

      This the answer

      Hope this will help you.

    Dear Venkat

    Go to VTFL, select the item category for the combination of your delivery type and billing type and check for the field "PricingExchRate type". There maintain "A", so that your requirement can be met.

    Incidentally, exchange rates are used for internal purpose and I dont think here where customer has come into picture. As you would agree export orders would be executed on a agreed unit price which would be in foreign currency and irrespective of exchange rate, you have to honour the export order. This is the standard rule. For information purpose, I am asking you, why you want then the exchange rate of sale order to flow in billing also which seems to be wrong.

    thanks

    Goto Header>Accounting of sale order while creating.

    There ias a field 'Exch.rate-acct.' system will take this value as exchange rate while doing accountings if some value is there.

    So maintain the required exchange rate manually there.
