Change of local currency amount in park document

Dear SAP Experts,

I have some queries regarding the local currency in parked document.

Here are the steps to generate the issues:

1. Enter vendor invoice using FB01 tcode. E.g the company code currency is MYR, then change the document currency to USD. Maintain both debit and credit leg for the document. Please enter more than one expense account with different amount at debit side.

Enter the amount in document currency (in this example is USD) field and enter. System will populate the local curreny (in this case is MYR) based on the table currenct updated in the system.

At this point, the local currency (MYR) need to be changed based on user's requirement. In this case,they will be some deviation of currency rate since user has manually entered the desired amount for local currency.

2. Park the document once finished.

3.Goto transaction FBV0 and open the parked document.

4. You can see the ammended local currency amount still populated correctly in local currency field.

5. Post parked document.

6. Display the document posted and see that the local currency amount has been changed to the amount based on table rate in system.


a. Is there any way to make sure that the ammended amount would not be changed after the document has been parked and then get posted? Please be informed that this scenario would not happened if the document is directly being posted without parked.

b. If the exchange rate at document header is being changed based on the desired amount of local currency, this would not be an issue. Since the requirement is only to change the local currency amount at GL level and not at Vendor line item. But at the end the total ammended amount at GL level has to be equal to the vendor total amount. how to resolve this issue? Can standard SAP process/configuration can catered this scenarios..?

Thanks a lot for you help.

Your kind cooperation is highly appreciated.

Kind regards,

    Solution is bit strange...

    Do not use FB01 ..

    Use t.code FV60 and when you ener the amount in document currency, system will automaticlaly display the local currency amount based on the exchange rate from table ...Double click on that line then system will show the item loc currency field in changeable mode make change as per your requirement and park it....

    Later post the document it will not change the loc currency amount

      Hi SAP experts ,

      My situation is the same - to park GL documents by uploading from a file and then edit the local currency amount if necessary.

      However in my case we have an excel sheet generated from an external system and our users want to upload them and park all the journals at a single time.

      We are using RFBIBl0 direct input program to upload the file and park then transaction using FBV1. Alll the documents are parked with the data as in the excel sheet.

      Next step is that the users go to FBV0 to edit the parked documents and sometimes it is required to change the local currency based on the current exchange rate and then post the journal .

      However when the parked documents are edited using FBV0 the local currency amount entered by the user is ignored and the system still overwrites it with the system calculated amount .

      b. As per your suggestion - I cannot use FV60 using direct input program as FV60 transaction is not supported.

      Please can you suggest if there is any way to park the Gl documents in background from a file and then edit the parked documents as required i.e change amounts and other fields.

      You help is much appretiated.

      Thanks and Regards,
