    Check in OKKP, the controlling area currency set for. You can maintain the plan values through KP06 in that currency for each cost center for different cost elements.

      Hi Anil,

      If I understand your requirement then you want to plan both in USD and INR at the same time.

      Say you maintain rate as 1 USD = 50 INR

      Do you want to plan for 100 USD and 480 INR against one combination (Cost Center / Cost Element) and 100 USD and 520 INR against another combination of Cost Center / Cost Element?

      SAP allows you to plan for a Cost Center / Cost Element combination only once. And that you can plan in any currency. Either in CO Area Currency or Object Currency (in this example Cost Center Currency) or in Transaction Currency (any other currency that you may choose). And the other currencies gets derived from the Exchange Rate maintained in the system using OB08 tcode. The exchange rate will be derived using the Planning Version "Exchange Rate Type" and "Value Date" (See Fiscal Year settings for Planning Version).

      So, if you plan in INR it gets translated to USD and vice versa. For planning in different currencies (only one is allowed) you need to change the planning layout to include the Amount Currency field.

      So for a single version say V1 you can plan in INR which gets translated to USD using OB08 exchange tare. Again you can plan in version V2 in USD which will get translated in INR using the same OB08 settings but you need to use a different Exchange Rate Type for V1 & V2.

      I am not sure what the business requirements are. If the requirements are only to display different currencies in a report then that can be achieved by creating a Report Painter report.

      Hope this helps.
