currency translation result xxxxx is too large - SG106

How to handle posting large dollar amount transactions that convert to foreign currency with large TCURF from ratio and throw error SG106? For instance, conversion of USD to SLL uses a 1 to 1000 conversion ratio and an exchange rate of approx. 0.30. Length of the converted amount in SLL exceeds length limit of the currency amount field when USD amount exceeds $3,000,000.

Some have suggested only way to handle is to split the document into multiple line items each with an amount less than $3,000,000. Any better way to handle this?

      Thanks AP.

      Most notes on SG106 fix program errors. Note 1151658 seems to be correcting a program error that causes SG106. That is not my issue. SG106 is a valid error. What I'm looking for is how other companies handle this situation.

      In our case we have frequent large dollar amount transactions with a local currency that has a high exchange ratio to USD. The ratio we are facing is around 1 to 3300. Transactions with USD amount greater than 3,000,000 are resulting in SG106 error because amount in local currency exceeds 9,999,999,99,99. I think SAP's suggestion is that we manually split the transactions into multiple transcations with smaller dollar amounts. That is not always possible, especially when dealing with automated processes.

      I am looking for other work arounds.
