Changing currency in Purchase Requisitions

Hi collegues,

I can not change the currency of a Purchase Requisition with account assignment K (cost center) and Item Category F (Services)

How can I change the currency if I need a diff one ?

Regards,

Lorena

    Hi,

    Try the following. Enter the details of the PR (do not specify item category D for service yet). In valuation tab, enter the currency you wan to use. Then specify item category D. In the service tab that appears, the specified currency should appear as default.

    Hope this helps.

    Try using transaction MEK4, by this way you are actually trying to change the condition records that are linked to the PReq, if this doesn't work out, then the only option is to delete thiqPRea line a create a new one

    Hola Lorena,

    As soon as service data have been maintained the currency cannot be changed anymore. This is hard business rule and cannot be changed from technical reasons.

    Therefore as already suggested, the following has to be done:

    1. create an item in ME51N and populate all neccessary item data.

    2. do NOT maintain any service line or limit

    3. go to the valuation tab. Depending on your customizing the currency is still ready for input. Maintain the desired currency. Please note that you may have to change the customizing for field selection

    reference key PT9B, make the currency ready for input!

    4. Maintain services. After that the currency field is greyed out by the System.

    Hopefully this helps, there is no other workaround available 😔

    Buen fin de semana
