Exchange rate difference while clearing

Dear friends,

During clearing for incoming / outgoing payments against invoices and other credit memos, system picks the current rate difined in OB08 for clearing which is not required. We need exchange rate difference from document rates.

Please help how can we configure it for the above scenario.

Thanks

    Thanks nag for your help,

    Actually what we need is the actual exchange rate difference between two clearing documents..

    like Invoice to Payment, but what is happening now, system is clearing both documents on the current rate defined in (ob08).

    Please note we clearly defined the GL account in the t-code.

    Did I clear my point..

    Regards,

      Hi,

      Exchange rate of invoice posting and payment posting must be different, then only the exchange rate difference will post.

      For example

      Invoice is posting on 01.03.2009 for 1,6000

      Payment is posting on 06.03.2009 for 1.755, then the exchange rate difference will posting will happen.

    Hi,

    In T-code OBA1, under transaction KDB assign the GL account for, (Gain from currency exchange rate differences and Loss from exchange rate differences).

    Hope this will solve you query.

    Dear,

    That is what exactly what we need, but actually system is behaving quite differently.

    In f-30

    If invoice is posted on 01.01.09 @ 75 rate

    Payment posted on 06.01.09 @ 75

    Current system rate is 76

    then system is clearing the invoice with payment at 76.

    Please guide us.

    Thanks

    Dear Friends,

    Thanks for your helpful answers, actually we are in big export business. So we have to clear 100s of invoice lines with payments at one go, (which obviously being booked at different dates) so it would be very difficult for the user to go one by one invoice.

    My concern is, why system does not calculate exchange rate difference based on actual documents, i.e. Invoice to payments only. I think there might be some configuration needed to implement this functionality.

    Please help.

    Regards

    Hi Waqas,

    I had the exact same problems at my client. I solved it using SAPnotes.

    Take a look at these: Note 980402 - KDM for PO's , Note 128 - Exchange Rate differences between GR and Invoice and also Note 113065 and 191927. Config is also required in Transaction OMRW

    These notes helped us and will help you I am sure.

    Kind Regards
