I have a problem with the currency rate maintenance.
I am a FICO consultant. In my scenario, there are 7 company codes and each using different currencies. I have maintained EUR as a reference currency and maintained the rates of each of these currencies into EUR (total 7 combinations). When I do the transactions in any of these currencies in any company codes, system is automatically calculating the rates and no issue from FI side.
However, as per the MM Consultant, while he is setting the release procedure for all the company codes, he requires to do all the combinations of exchange rates for all the currencies i.e. totally around 49 are required to be made in OB08. Otherwise, he says system issues error message.
I do not understand why this is so ? How the currency rate setting in exchange rates using a reference currency is not sufficient with regard to MM settings are concerned ? If this is the case, it is so tedious to maintain all the rate combinations.
Pl. help me to resolve this issue.
