For Example if the Acquistion date : 01/01/2008 (mm/dd/yyyy) the currency translation should happend based on the rate maintained as on 31/01/2008.

    First, you will need to convert the actual acquisition date to the end date of the Fiscal Period. This can be done by using two separate Function Modules. First, get the actual Fiscal Period by entering the date and Fiscal Year Variant into the DATE_TO_PERIOD_CONVERT Function Module. Use the Fiscal Year and Fiscal Period from this and determine the end date of the Fiscal Period by using Function Module LAST_DAY_IN_PERIOD_GET with Fiscal Year, Fiscal Period and Fiscal Year Variant as your inputs.

    For the conversion, use the Function Module CONVERT_TO_LOCAL_CURRENCY. The inputs for this would be the last date of the Fiscal Period, the amount to be converted, the from currency code, the to currency code, blank in rate, AS01 in type of rate and X in read TCURR. This assumes, however, that month-end rates (rate type = AS01) have been loaded into your source system and these rates have been transferred to your BW environment.
